Peek-a-boo. 4 hidden copper plated lead balls on each end of the Torqbar allow you to shift the balance by as much as 1.2 grams. If any need to be removed for balancing, you can then also shift the balance left or right by the arrangement of the balls, then use a bit of cotton to fill the void. I ship them balanced — it takes about 10 minutes to do the balancing. A couple have been dead on without any balancing needed.


You just hold it and watch it. The bearing is so smooth the heavy end will fall. If it’s balanced end to end but not side to side, it will ‘fall’ into a horizontal position with the heavier side down.

My new mill gets delivered tomorrow. It will take me a few days to get it set up, then it’s full steam ahead 🙂
