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.

Customer Reviews
"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."
- Robert B.
"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."
- Allen K

    Very nice

    Posted by Jerry Crow on Nov 18th 2020

    I bought these not knowing how often I would use them. The very first day I found a use for them and they work beautifully! They sure make a novice fabricator like myself turn out impressive projects! Buy them! You won't be dissappointed.

    Magnetic Shim Kit

    Posted by gary roushkolb on Nov 14th 2020

    This kit will keep me from wasting time digging in the cutoff box for just the right size spacers. I think it will pay for itself in just that small part of the use and will be safer in the end. Thanks for the innovation!

    Magnetic Shim - Excellent!

    Posted by Greg on Sep 20th 2020

    I was very surprised about the great quality not only in the shims but how they are presented in the case. Nice touch - Fireball logo on the case.
    Now the shims - they are beautiful - so much so that I don't want them to get scratched during use. Way better than I thought they would be.
