    These are not stainless, I think, but only about $20 USD for one shipped in the USA, and $27 for two.
    These threads might not be well centered, which would make them unsuitable for balancing.

    The stainless rods from the UK are £17.79 each (about $30?) shipped to the USA,
    but most likely much higher precision, I expect.

    I bought a hobby knife kit and screwed of the blades and picked one the will fit the motor threads. Unfortunately I can only balance two motors in this way because the other two are left hand threads:-(
