I found it to be a great idea ! I had to turn down the smallest pin on the balancer to fit the blade grip but it worked just great . First , find the CG without the grips to get your reference for adding tape if needed .
Mount the pin in the drill chuck , mount the drill in the vise , bring the drill to speed and lock-in , and mill the pin to size with a file for a perfect fit for the blade grip .
Here's an alternate way of balancing blades using the KSJ blade balancer which works with the Corona. You will need a good-quality digital scale with a resolution of at least 0.1 gram (0.01 is even better) to use it.
1. Use the KSJ blade balancer to find the CGs of the blades
2. Apply electrical tape until you get the blades CGs to match
3. Use the digital scale and weigh the blades
4. Add electrical tape to the CG of the lighter blade until the blades weigh the same
This isn't as accurate as using the KSJ blade balance for both steps, but it works reasonably well for my two Coronas.
