No-Mar and Harbor Freight
Balancer Upgrade Kit
by Marc Parnes Products

Now you can upgrade your existing low-quality cones and axle to high quality components specifically designed to fit the No-Mar and Harbor Freight balancing stands.

What Makes Our Components Better?

The axle is a critical part of the balancer. It must be perfectly round, straight, hard and resistant to bending. I chose my axle source very carefully. I ended up with .500" ground and polished tool steel. It is dead-on-size and straight within .001".

In order to support the wheel without any runout or wobble, cones and adapters must be machined to exacting specifications. Their surface has to be dead-on-size and perfectly concentric with the axle bore. If this isn't done correctly you'll be balancing to compensate for the runout in the cones rather than the imbalance in your wheel. I machine my cones and adapters from 6061-T6 aluminum on a CNC lathe producing both the taper and bore at the same time in one setup. What this means is that the axle bore and surface are dead-on. Clearance between the axle and cone is just as critical. My cones are bored .002" larger than the axle for a perfect slip fit.

The Famous "Shipping and Handling" Game

We don't play the Shipping and Handling game. Most sites these days advertise one price and then get you with an excessive shipping and add-on handling charge during the checkout procedure. They figure if you've gotten that far you'll probably just go for it. We think that's sneaky business so all of our prices include shipping right to your door.

We ship outside of the US via International First Class Mail with insurance. In the case of loss or damage the insurer requires that we inform them of the loss within 90 days.
