Hey, Bower. For the CP blades I used appropriately sized finishing nails to locate the blades on the tray of the HMX balancer, then clamped them to the surface using (iirc) the 2.5mm clamp on top of them. However, I got tired of that balancer-- it's finicky and easy to get a bad reading from --and started doing what raz suggests; nice long bolt and a couple of nuts/washers to hold the blades out, and you can get very accurate.

You still need something else for spanwise CG, but a razor blade, or just setting the blades together in opposite directions in the HMX balancer will work for that usually.
