I knew we had this some place...just found it! It was on another board before we had the CG board.
Thanks to Terryman for the great pictures.

Thanks for the pictures Terry...I've used something similar for years.  I used dowl and replaceable rubber pencil erasures.  They look kinda like a wedge on the top.

Simple Balancing Tool

Not my original idea but here is a simple balancing tool.  Holes are drilled to the same depth (1" in this case) in a 2X4 and filled with unsharpened pencils.  The erasers were rounded a bit with sand paper.  The pencils are a little loose in the holes so they can be spaced to suit the a/c.
