Installing a magnet on a fan.
You want to check the balance of the fan on a high point style balancer before you install the magnet in the fan.
Then if the fan has a heavy side, you want to install the magnet on the opposite( lighter) side of the fan.
Once this is done, the fan needs to be checked again on the high point balancer to see if the fan is balanced. If the fan is not balanced, then I suggest taking a drill and making divots removing material on the heavy side till the fan is balanced. A perfectly balanced fan is then installed on the motor for a smoother running setup.
