I just bought a prop balancer but it doesn't say how to adjust a folding prop. I've made sure that the folding prop is fully opened on the balancer. Do you sand off the end tip on the heavy side of the prop, or file off some of the metal connector; or somehow add weight to the light side?

I'm afraid to change the shape of the tip, as I'm running at 7,700 rpm's.

adding clear nail polish to the flat side in close to the hinge is good.recheck when dry if to much scrape a little off with a sharp blade.
