Thanks for the pics Shelly :!: I have made a tractor balance, and it wasn't any fun. It balanced for a few seconds on a hillside trying to decide ifn it was gonna turn over, with me on it, or return to earth on all 4 tires. A scary ride, it was. :shock:

Shelly, a couple of balances I have used have been made from old truck trays with a steel beam approx 4" wide across the center underneath. This cross beam needs to be sitting on a hard base to give a firm pivot. The tray ideally would have a wooden deck which is not slippery for tracks or steel wheels or heavy conveyor belt over steel for safety.
Regards,
John
