Hopefully this might help somebody ...

While setting up some of my machines to get them running smoothly i.e. getting my tenoner to cut square and the planer thicknesser beds to run smoothly I have found it useful to have some very thin shims.

I found packets of assorted paper " Flute pad washers " from Wind plus to be very useful and very cheap, well worth keeping a few in a drawer.

How do they compare to the standard trick of cutting up aluminium drinks cans ? :)
Well, with the shims he doesn't have to drink the contents first - so he more likely to be sober when he fits them...

I'll get my coat :mrgreen:

Cheers, Vann.

you can't get drunk on aluminium drinks. You might get half cut though!
