Ealrgo, I came across this video while having my morning coffee. This fella built his own wheel balancer system. Here is the first of the 3 part video.

Don't know if you have or use a wheel balancer but this one looks pretty straight forward to build.

I finally got the opportunity to watch the Suburban guy do the wheel balancing and trueing thing. He is working with a surface grinder and we have T&C grinders, so don't over think it. I primarily use Norton SG wheels, they are pricey but last quite a bit longer between dressing. Their number is 5SG60-KVS.

I don't have a balancer nor do I need extremely fine finishes for grinding drills, or threading dies, just accuracy.
I made a dressing post and bought a diamond to use in it.

I do not have a magnetic chuck but do have a really good 3 axis Yuasa vise.
Just do it and don't worry about too much, you won't destroy the machine or wheels if you are reasonably careful.

WO2P:
How goes the Delta Toolmaker rebuild. Haven't heard about it lately. Most likely life is getting in the way.
Keep us posted.
