I have an older coats wheel balancer. Works great and is accurate. The problem is that on modern car 19-22" wheels it becomes really hard to eyeball the correct place on the wheel for the weight. Extra spins become common because the last weight was a few degrees off the mark. Newer balancers have laser pointers that make it easy. Has anyone retrofitted a pointer to their older balancer? Did you buy a kit or did you build something? I've done some searching but I can't find anyone that's done this before. I feel like it would be really handy.

The local distribution here in Hong Kong, has two brands on offer:
Hunter, who are well known and reputable, and Ravaglioli, who are well-represented, but
relatively unknown to me.
Does anyone here have any information to share on the pro's and cons of these two?
I've had mixed results with Italian equipment in the past, some good, some tragic.
Hoping to avoid any unnecessary shedding of tears, blood and cash.
Is anyone attending the SEMA / AAPEX shows out in Vegas next week? Curious if anyone from this forum is going and what you're hoping to get from the trade shows. This will be my 4th time at AAPEX/SEMA, and my first time getting involved with the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS). I believe this is the first time that AAPEX and CARS have been integrated into a single trade show, so I'm interested to see how it goes.
