    I made a counter balance for a Harbor Freight bench top drill press using various things scrounged from my shop.

    I would consider that for mine but it has a 3rd step pulley in the center. Next time I'm out there I'll look and see if there is room. I kind of doubt it.

    Another option instead of paracord is ball chain.
