Bob's balancer comes UPSIDE DOWN :-)

Hi all,

it just turned out that anlucas and I had the same problem: we didn't realize that the fan, as it comes, has to be made operational:

The balancing beam is held on with copious amounts of blue tac, but I thought that would have to be that way, who knows.

So if you receive the balancer, remove the beam from the blue tac, remove the blue tac, and turn it upside down so that the two "feet" are now actually reaching the sensors. Oh my. No wonder I was not getting anything sensible from the balancer...

Well, maybe the sheet of paper you get with the product could be updated to spare other people a great amount of time and anger


first of all thank you for shipping the balancer, it came well-packed, and I went about and tried several motors, fans etc.

But so far not much success, and I tried really hard.

Now I read in the other thread about your balancer that the transverse beam should touch BOTH magnets.

So I pushed it down, but even using a lot of force, I cannot bring it to touch both.
Should I step on it (my feeling is that even that wouldn's suffice, but rather destroy parts of the fan)

Thanks for assistance
