Description

Magnetic Shop Shims

Set of 28 Shop Shims with storage case, finally got these in stock again.

Each shim is ground on 6 sides with two magnets on the bottom face, there are 7 different heights and 4 pieces of each height in a set. These shims have countless uses around the shop and also in combination with our squares.

The magnet sizes are carefully chosen so that the taller shims have enough magnetic force to hold them up sideways on a project while carrying some of the smaller shims.  

The thinner shims have smaller magnets which reduce the amount of force required to remove them.

The shims are ground on all 6 sides to an accuracy of +/- 0.0009 which is less than 1/1024 of an inch! Think of a 1/32” reading on a machinist rule, now divide it by 32 again to get 1/1024 of an inch.

Shims are hardened to HRC 50.

Just remember, to properly measure these you need to use a micrometer mounted on a stand and with the shim wiped clean. A pair of calipers in the hand with a dirty shim will not get an accurate measurement.

    Bought these thinking it was a novel idea.
    Now I don't know how I worked without them!
    The best time saver to come along in ages.
    They really are worth every penny when you factor in the time/labor ratio, hunting for shim stock in the junk pile.

    Nice and handy.

    Checked them out and they are very accurate. Better then what I need. Since getting them I have found they are useful for more than fabrication. They are not cheap, but quality tools never are.

    I got both, metric and imperial sets. According to my digital calipers Imperial set was dead on, not even a thousands off. My metric shins are all of by 0.01 mm. For my purpose it’s fine. The handle on the metric box was missing a pin on one side but I found one in my shop that fits just fine. Overall great product.

    This will help any fabricator or metal working enthusiast. Infinite ways to use the only limitation is your imagination.

    They are well machines and are a useful addition to my shop. I would recommend them. I do not know how strong the magnets are on practice, but appear to be adequate. Fireball makes a quality product
