Thanks for your input
I've balanced this way and it works, as long as you put a wrench on one end of the axle and keep working the wrench back and forth. This keeps the wheel bearings and seals from stopping the wheel at the wrong spot from friction.

Been using a Marc Parnes balancer for years - works like a charm.
