WHEEL BALANCER- another home made tool

by John

This is a jig for balancing wheels for steam engines, grinding wheels etc.

The jig has 3 adjustable pointed bolt legs for levelling.

The top of the jig was flattened on a surface grinder, then the silver steel bars were bolted (without tension).

If the wheel is perfectly balanced it will not roll.
