Here is a vintage Hunter wheel balancer which we used in our shop for decades. It worked very well back in the day when most cars and light trucks had normal size steel wheels (13 to 16 inches) and drum brakes. The paint is faded and quite dirty; needs a good cleaning or restoring if you want that. This will not work with newer alloy or aftermarket wheels and only works with brakes which aren't dragging too badly (some disc calipers especially can keep it from spinning the wheel fast enough).

It operates as expected; place in front of the tire, pull the handle forward to spin it, back to shut it off, then use the Hunter Kwiklok system to get any shimmy out as the wheel spins freely, and the dial will tell you where to place the correct amount of weight. It's heavy but moves around on wheels and the handle folds. It really does work great on vintage cars. I use it on my '62 Galaxie, for example. It's fun to use but I need space so am selling some vintage equipment.
