John Heisz at I Build It.ca has a jig that makes making shims quick and safe.
|A Shim Jig, not a Shindig. |
I especially like this shim jig because it has a system to hold the small shim after it has been cut lose. A jig like this is something that I would make while I was supposed to be cleaning up the shop or when I was puttering around waiting for glue to dry. Jigs like this are always painted red or orange so that they doesn't blend into the back ground and get lost amongst the other bits of wood and incomplete projects in my shop.
