9857Re: 11112: Balancing Cone
- Dec 2, 2003Thanks Jon,
I tinkered with smaller rings last night and think I found the right
size. It is a little strong but if I add weight to the cone it
should be alright.
I think I have the setup close now. I am going to put together three
cones this week. And the other two rings this weekend.
