Somehow that sounds a little . I know you meant an engineer who pays attention to detail, but it reads differently.

How'd did he see what he was doing with all the Sheet in the way?

I'm interested in the photos for the next project to build for the winter.

Hunter makes a great tire / wheel balancer that I've used. It cost something like $20,000, though.

That's what I figured... that what I would be worried about with the wood balancer... great idea though... especially the roller blade wheels!
