    Finished some caster shims this morning. I always cut the relief and drill them so they can be bolted to the spring pack with the leaf spring bolt. Most of time they are stamped on the ends with the angle they are (sometimes I forget):oops:. There are 3 sets, 4º, 5º and 6º pictured.

    Now on to my next project, modifying a bellcrank for tapered roller bearings.

    There was a "metal art" class offered at the university I attended. I'd certainly call those shims 'art' well before any of the :poo: that spilled out of that studio.
