Default how to build an airplane balancer

Some where in the bowls of RCU there is a thread with images of a balancer that looks like a broom stick with cord wound around it and a plumb bob attached in some manner that can be used to balance larger airplanes.. The RCU search engine does not bring it up. Can some body point me at it?

Thanks
Jerry

Thanks Scale Only,
I have rigged up something that works but not as well as a Venessa rig. Neat the way you fastened the pipe to the ceiling. It should work with big heavy airplanes.
