Does anyone have a video of how to do this. There is some way to find the center of each blade using a ruler and marking them .
Thanks for your help.

Buy something like this, simple to use. What size blades are you trying to balance? I wouldn't bother with any over 325mm. You normally don't need to balance the larger quality CF blades.

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

When I balanced my wood blades, I used a knife edge held in a vise. You then put the blade on like a teeter totter and slide it back and forth until you find the CG.

I found this which shows the basic method I used.
Kind of funny the way he balanced on a spray can, that's where I used a knife edge.
