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.
