I found these aluminium angle and strip. They seemed ideal for shims for tool holder.


HSS tool bits I am using are bit tool small for the tool holder. The aluminium angle works well to fill the gap between the tool and tool holder.


When I need thinner shims I cut the thickness of the strip by mill. Shown is 2mm thick shim.


I made shims of various thicknesses from my metal sheet off-cuts and marked thickness on them by number punches. Bottom one is from annealed beer can. Thickness is about 0.1mm.
