Balancing carbs

I had seen some discussion of carb balancing before the forum moved over here, but I had never found a full "how to" on it. Can someone point me towards one?

what tool do you guys use? I have one of these (Motion pro carb sync tool), will it work?

Those are great. You can get by without, I found you needed to set just a bit off before tightening the nut, which would put it back in sync. It's a bit of trial and error to get the right amount "off"

I made my own balancer last year with some clear tubing, a drywall T, zip ties and a ladder. I used the acid bottle I got with my battery as an aux tank which rested atop the ladder.
