Pre-Cut Shims
They're Quick! They're Money Savers
They're Quick! They're Money Savers!

Costly hand cutting is eliminated (one hand cut shim can cost four times more than a Pre-Cut shim.)
You save inventory space by eliminating the need to carry a large selection of foil stock. Pre-Cuts or Alignment Shims can be reused because they're made of durable corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel.

Unused Pre-Cuts are simply replaced in the case -- ready for the next job.

They're Accurate!

The wide range of available shim thicknesses eliminates the need to stack shims, thereby providing a more stable alignment.

You also get a better alignment because with Pre-Cuts there are no burrs or square corners. Safer, too -- they virtually eliminate hand injuries due to burrs of "snip cuts."

No more searching or guessing -- the right size is permanently marked on each shim. All nominal sizes are accurately marked within a tolerance of ±.001.
