I purchased a Baileigh brake/shear so that I could manufacture stainless steel shims for the BT3000. After taking the time to dial in the perfect settings I made some fixed gauges for the various depths of cut and bend needed for repeat-ability. I’ll update this with some pictures soon.
Save your Ryobi BT3000 table saw! Replace the shims so the arbor raises and lowers with ease again. These shims are made from 302 stainless steel which are rust resistant and very durable. Order 2 if you would like to replace both shims.
Manufactured with a Shear/Brake to ensure precision. There is no waviness or rough edges to the shims, and they seat nicely.
0.008″ THICK ALLOY 302 FULL HARD TEMPER STAINLESS STEEL (18/8 CHROME-NICKEL) HARDNESS: ROCKWELL C 40-45
Here is a graphic which shows all of the locations I have shipped shims to:
