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.

    I purchased the 2" shop shims to easily set my Magic Square to 90'. They are perfect and will find many uses.

    I wanted to complete my magnetic shim kit I purchased last year. I had space in the kit box so I completed and the smaller sizes. Love the shims. Remember if you use them in the MIG welding process spray them with a lite coating of Walter's E-Weld 4 weld spatter release emulsion. Also purchase at Fireball Tool.

    They make it easy to keep your work pieces spaced the same distance apart , you can use them to hold pieces horizontal to put a tack weld so your not trying to hold the part and getting it out of wack, plus there’s many other uses for them , they are a great product !
