I've done a search and unable to find anyone
who sells washer as shims in a variety of thicknesses
for a variety of bolts. I have tried to create my own
to a degree, but it would be nice to find a variety
pack that I could buy - cheaply - like under $30.
Shopsmith sells a pack in colors that corresponds
to the thickness, but if I remember right, it was
with something else included and it wasn't cheap.
I thought I was a great searcher, but on this particular
quest, I got stumped.
Anyone got an idea where I could find them?

There are all kinds of shaft bearing shim washers but they're tended to
be sized by bearings so again the app is probably key to the right kind
Just to periodically have something to shim my various tools: bandsaw,
etc. Right now, I am trying to level out my band saw. I've made some
of shim stock, but it's a bother. Just was looking to buy a variety
I thought I tried McMaster's, et al., and struck out, but will do
The place you pointed to me, has them, but I didn't see a package
deal anywhere. I'll look again.

Small parts has a couple of assortments of arbor shims, might do what
They have lots of handy stuff. Prices tend to be high, but if you need
it and they have it....
