ON-CAR WHEEL BALANCING?

I keep seeing used on-car wheel balancers for sale. Should I buy one and start my own on-car wheel balancing service. Back in tech school I was given a demo on how to use one. I feel I am missing something since so very few shops choose to do this service. Do on-car balancers only work with older steel rims?

They are not even close as far as accuracy when compared to the new computer balancers.
