Purpose built Large Scale Prop Balancer...Does it exsist?

I'm not interested in the dobro because It is not designed for large props in my opinion and I haven't found one designed to handle up to 35" props.

Does anything like this exsist?

While not designed for large props, DuBro sells a longer shaft and that combined with a few simple mods allows a large prop to turn a full revolution hanging over the edge of a workbench. Works for me.

I have the balancer from Vogelsang Aeroscale, check his site for the V2 3D prop balancer, it works great on props up to 48". I love it.

Yes indeedy......not sure if he has any more though, as the one I ordered was supposed to be from his last stock, and that was a couple of years ago.

Add me to the list. I love this balancer. Works great on both 2 and 3 blade props.

Why couldn’t you use a modified blade balancer for lawn mower blades?
