    Understood! I am just looking for an unfair advantage that no one knows about and then sharing it on a public forum.
    Doh!

    I finally settled on plain old blister pack. Really a no brainer after the fact.

    Comes in different thicknesses. Can be quickly sanded to fit if needed. The price is right, free. It's resistant to oil -n- goo, cleans right up, and thus is re-usable after servicing .

    I had some tape solder which probably means it is a 60/40 mix of tin/solder. Two small strips of this weigh .2 grams on my cheap electronic scale. If I could find sheet lead that thin I could more than double the weight of the shims. 😆 That is almost 1/2 a gram!

    Scott, trying to gain weight

    Nice shiny steel is magnetic. Shimming T-Jet magnets with steel can get you in trouble with most groups.

    Be careful, that always gets me in trouble or causes a headache.

    Stupid thing I think of at work...

    All these years I have been making shims for TJet magnets out of milk jug plastic, aluminum tea lite cups and so forth. Maybe I should be shimming with lead foil. More weight.
    Hmmmm.
