BT3000 Shim from stainless steel stock

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.

I am selling them here on my website (cost saving compared to EBay) and on EBay.I also sell a complete set here on my website and on Ebay.

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.

  1. BT 3000 Shims

    Replaced about 15 years ago on 95 BT 3k. Bound up on a thick crosscut (chop saw died too) and chattered the shims to death. What are you asking for the shim kit? If still available.

    Thanks

    Hall Castle? Any relation to Hal Castle?
