I was looking around, and it seems that there are no entries for homemade counterweights. I’ve tried a lot of different things, and only have come up with 1 or 2 good weights. If anyone has any designs that have worked for them, that would be great.
I’ve tried taking the 25 cent capsules, filling them with silicone, and drilling a hole (this seems to work)
and I’ve had a successfull weight made from a small rubber duck, silicone filled, penny weighted, and painted.
