One of the most difficult tasks in hand cutting dovetails is accurately transferring the tails and precisely sawing the pins.  Rob's improved method of transferring tails to the pin board by offsetting the tailboard by the thickness of the saw kerf takes all the guess work out of where to saw.

Offsetting by the exact thickness can be challenging, but the Shawn Shim helps improve your offset accuracy.  The brainchild of one of our Purple Heart Project alumni, we named the shim in honor of him.

Precisely milled to work with our regular dovetail saw, which requires a kerf thickness of .024 inches. The regular Shawn Shim has four different offsets to allow you to tighten or loosen the fit of the dovetails as needed.  

  • CNC milled from solid brass. 
  • 3/4 inch x 3/4 inch wide.  1-1/2 inches tall.
  • Four offset sides: .023, .024, .025, .026 of an inch thickness.
  • Offset amount engraved on each end of the shim.
  • Weight: 100 grams
  • Made in Canada.

    Nice presentation, well made and very easy to use. No second guessing with this tool, you just index, spin once and you're good to go.

    Amazing

    Excellent piece of kit. Well made and well packaged, makes cutting dovetails far easier than my old piece of scrap wood with layers of masking tape that I used to use
