that's what I did at first.. 1/2in rod and aluminum machined spacers on my lathe. rolling over two sealed bearing resting on two jack stands. works excellent.
now I've got a No Mar balancer and Snap-on static balancer. a bit more refined, but works no better than the home made version.
key is watching video below... shows you a very precise way to balance
