BRD5 tuning with new v5 blade. Has a much larger k and requires much more mass. The stack of masses might be too high to add on the beamsplitter (see picture attached). We had to look for longer screws.

  Bounce Mode Mass Frequency (Hz)   Roll Mode Mass Frequency (Hz)
Trial 1 2.74g+2*0.91g+screw=5.167g f=36.063   2.74g+screw+washer=3.399g f=54.288
Trial 2 4.23g+2*1.1g+screw=7.094g f=25.568   2.54g+2*1.1g+screw+washer=5.420g f=34.64
Trial 3 4.23g+2.7g+2*0.62g+long screw=8.976g f=19.248   4.23g+2*1.1g+long screw=7.295g f=24.80
Trial 4 4.23g+2.7g+1.64g+long screw=9.361g f=18.320      
Trial 5 4.23g+2.7g+2.27g+flathead screw=10.071g f=16.368
