A shim is a shim, right?  You can’t really improve on a tapered piece of wood — or can you?  Peel-A-Shim claims their Speed-Shim will help you get the job done faster without the shims moving, spinning, or splitting.   Instead of trying to line up a bunch of wedge-shaped shims, you just peel off the correct number of shims to fill the gap.

Made in the USA from engineered wood fiber, a Speed-Shim block measures 3-1/2″W x 1-1/4″D x 1/2″H.  Each 1/2″ block has 20 layers. Peel off the right number of layers to create your shim, from 1/32″ to 1/2″ thick — the adhesive back keeps the shim in place while you secure it.

You can get a free sample of Speed-Shims from the link at the end of the post.  If you must buy ’em, you’ll pay $25 for 60 Speed-Shim blocks on the Peel-A-Shim website or $7 for 24 Speed-Shim blocks at Duluth Trading Company.

    Out of curiousity, I was always told to use Playing Cards for general shimming needs (non-construction at least. Like leveling a pool table). Would this be a better idea?

  2. Joe says:

    I’m sure these would be useful in certain applications, but you can’t beat sliding two wedge-shaped shims against each other when it comes to adjustability.

    Tried twice but “free samples” isn’t working for me.

  4. Barri says:

    Me either. Site seems to be down

  5. Hmm… I just tried it at 8:30psm CST and it was working.

    I don’t know what to say, give it another try.

  6. That would be 8:30 PM, boy I wish it would be that easy to get another 12 hours in a day….

    it seems you get more from Duluth. For $21 you get 72 speed shims which is better than 60 shims for $25.

    Yeah, I must say old cardboard boxs, playing card decks that are missing cards, and allsorts of other “scrap” would be cheap and IMO just as easy

    I bought them 20 years ago at Lumber Jack in Algonac, Mich. I have always found them very handy. I am running low on them. Does Duluth Trading Co. still carry them?
