I'd put a small bolt through the hole and see if the blade will stay horizontal. If not, I'd grind some off the heavy side, I'd grind on the riser out towards the blade end rather than the cutting edge.

Yep, that's the easiest/cheapest way I know of. You can also use a nail.

They do make an apparatus to check blade balance. It's a pretty simply gadget. The base is round and has a point sticking up, like a nail. The round top part sits on the point. The top part has ridges that will fit the inside hole of different blades. A picture is worth a thousand words, especially in this case.

Wait a second here. If you're talking about rotary cutter blades, I don't know.

I I'm talking about rotory blades, i know the way to do it when the blade mounting hole is in the center of the blade but cant fiqure how to do when mounting hole is on one end. OR does it matter if there balanced on rotory cutters the way they swing from the end? i was thinking maybe it has something to do with keeping the blades the same weight but not sure

Heck if I know, plots1. The only way I can think of to balance a rotary cutter blade against the other would be to weigh them. I'm sure someone will speak up here and shed some light on this predicament.

I've never tried to balance mine. Actually never heard of anyone else doing it.

I have never balanced them but know of 2 ways that will work. Weigh them and compare the weights, or make a simple balance beam and hang one on each end. Simply grind some more off of the one that goes down until they hang level or close to level.

Knife-edge balances are pretty accurate for comparing the weights of things. You actually can use a real knife.

I'm with slowrev the balance is the easiest way to get them balanced, but a beam level is not required to do it.

Find an overhead wood structure handy to the workbench and/or grinder, door frames are handy spots, and screw a small pulley into the wood. Next run a short 2'? through the pulley and tie a hook onto each end.

To balance your blades just hang one from each end, a difference in weight will cause the heavy one to fall and the light one to rise, speed is an indication of the difference, if it hardly moves it is close to balanced. Then just grind some off the heavy one till they balance.

Best of luck.

Not if you don't mind replacing bearings and re-welding mounts and brackets on a regular basis....
