Prop Balancing

I get the blades to balance. then turn the prop vertical. If it falls to one side I note which side of the hub goes down. Then turn back to vertical with the opposite blade up and if the same side of the hub goes down noted previously then that's the heavy side of the hub. I've added as little as a few hardened drops of CA up to some very small steel washers CA'd to the light side of the hub. When fully balanced you should be able to move the prop into any position and it will stay there. Then balance spinner
