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

    Jason knocked it out of the park AGAIN! Almost too pretty to use. Highly accurate shims and even a great carry case with compartments to keep the shims from banging together.

    Great experience with fireball tools! This shipment was delayed in the fedex system and the folks at Fireball contacted them on my behalf and were able to give me an update the next day. The shims are as advertised and I would buy them again without hesitation. Thank you to the staff at Fireball Tool for offering amazing products and going the extra mile for your customers.

    Very nice

    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 wont be dissappointed.
