Default Blade Tracking on the 600

How does one track the blades on a 600? Obviously it is too big to hold say like the SE, so how is tracking possible?

You put some tape or use a magic marker to mark the tip of one blade. Then hover it and see which blade is high. Having a friend help is good!!!

As finless says, you can use tracking tape which are narrow self adhesive tapes you stick around the tip of the blades, different colours each end, then hover just in front of you at eye level and you can sight the tracking difference. You can manage without any tapes by marking one blade as the master blade, I lightly run a drill bit by hand on the inner face of the root of a main blade, set the pitch up using this blade, match the other up with a pitch guage. If the tracking is out adjust the unmarked blade, you have a 50-50 chance of getting the direction right, if not adjust the other way until it is spot on.
