A counterweight of lead would be much to expensive for big cranes. Most cranes use counterweights made from concrete. -- JeLuF

The only reason I said lead was because I once saw a tv program on the leaning tower of Piza and they used lead counterweights to try and correct the lean. As you can probably tell I am no expert on cranrs. Theresa knott 21:01 Mar 29, 2003 (UTC)

Blocked resource[edit]

One of the metronome reference was blocked from adding by a WP spam filter. If someone can figure out how to add

Counterbalancing as a research method[edit]

Counterbalancing redirects here, but counterbalancing in e.g. psychological research means something completely different. It is a method for getting rid of confounding order effects in experiments. I suggest a new page for that. --128.148.107.229 (talk) 03:32, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Concur, I came here to look into counterbalancing (the Method).129.215.24.101 (talk) 19:46, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
