We have 2.5 degree steel shims in stock if those will not work. The thickness depends on how long the shim is and how thich it is on the small end. For instance our shims are 1/8 on the small end and roughly around 1/4 to 5/16 on the thick end. Keep in mind the lenght of the shim will also effect how thick it is.

Thanks

this is simple to figure out with a little math. Measure both ends and subtract the small end from the big end (in the example above .250 - .125 = .125) and this is considered the oposite side of the right triangle. Now measure the total length of the angled part of the shim... for this example we will assume its 3" so to figure it out go in to your computers accesories and bring out the scientific calculator and punch this in-

(.125/3.00) inverse Sin = 2.4

and this is your answer.
