Ellison AllStar Machine Shims
After prolonged use, Shims tend to wear out and inconsistent cutting may occur. Also, as the Cutting Pad becomes worn, it will be necessary to add one or two AllStar Machine Shims to compensate for the wear. If you experience any cutting difficulty with the Ellison AllStar Machine and Dies, try placing a Shim on the Base Plate of the AllStar Machine, with the folded tab inserted into the opening. For your cutting convenience, AllStar Shims are sold in a package of 4 (two Mylar Shims .010" thick and two "I" Shims .005" thick).
