Getting all the teeth lined up on a dado stack is hard enough without worrying about losing shims — that’s why Forrest dado stacks ship with magnetic shims. But you don’t need to buy the Forrest to get these shims; you can buy them separately and they’ll stay stuck to just about any steel blade or chipper.

Besides losing shims, there are a few reasons you’d want to buy magnetic shims: you’ve bent or mutilated your old ones and they need replacing, or you’re sick of dropping them into the bowels of your table saw and having to dig them out.

Available with 5/8″, 1″, and 1-1/4″ bores, the set of six magnetic shims contains two 0.010″ shims, two 0.012″ shims, and two 0.015″ shims. Pricing for a set starts at $12 before shipping.

    I don’t know anything about these shims, but I can say that I have used their ten inch table saw blades for 15 years and they are dead on. No sanding required. They are the absolute best. sd

    this is totally an example of “why the hell didnt I think of that?”
    these make so much sense!

    Can’t you just magnetize the shims (or the blade) that you’ve already got?

    The other Dave has a good point. I wonder how quickly heat would make them demagnetize though?
