How to balance the spinner...

Ok, I'm sorry for all the simple questions here, but my epoxy filler has dried. I've done the motor-as-a-lathe smooth-up of the exterior. Now, I am wondering how you balanced the spinner?

My magnetic balancer is 1/8"+ and too big for the hole. I was thinking of using 3mm drill bit (or something smaller that fits the hole closely). Is that what you did? Alternatively I can ream out the hole (yikes). Or did you just go straight to the dynamic balancer and then drill out the spinner instead of adding weight?
