well 1st thing is yeah you could get away with your balance technique with maybe a 12 turn tops.
and like jack said they need to be balanced per side meaning the machines measure both ends of a stack and you baance each individually.
but i know even the best winders only get like 1 outta maybe 5,000 that never need to be balanced no matter if the pattern is perfect or the windings are tight.
also how are you attaching the wire to the comm??
are you epoxying the whole arm after it is wound??
are you using fresh blanks or unwrapping wound motors??
if youre unwrapping arms to get blanks how many you wind stay together or dont short and smoke??
and yes it is way cheaper to buy a motor then to buy the equipment to make a your own arms.
i wont say individual equipment prices but to make an arm you would buy from TRINITY,reedy,orion
it would be around 10,000
