Balancing tips:

Try to do it dynamic by balancing motor and fan together. With these small
fans You may hold the motor by Your fingers and feel the vibrations. No
need for expensive equipment.

On some fan designs I've just rotated fan on the shaft until the vibrations
was at a minimum no weight added.

Note that 100% balanced is simply not possible it's just less or more unbalance.

BE CAREFUL! Wear some protection! Never be in in front of fan, it's
where the fan parts comes out!

That and check the bearings. I've seen brand new motors with sloppy bearings. No amount of balancing would get rid of the vibrations
