Agree with Walt, you can follow the manual blindly it will work as magic, but first you need the expert to tell you it is unbalanced, and then the correction can be done like a recipes by anyone.

This may be true some of the time. Fortunately there are enough challenging balance jobs that require more that following a recipe!

For me the phase angle increases opposite of rotation.  But, the real trick is to know when the machine is not responding to test weight as it should.  Then time to stop and regroup.  This is where blindly following the manual can get you in trouble or have you chasing your tail.

Throw in the use of a strobe in place of some kind of photo tach type thing and life may get interesting right after the first balance shot.
