How To Cut Shim Brass Washers
Have you ever wanted to make some thin shim-brass washers from brass shim stock? Sure, you can buy them, but usually only in package quantities and not always in the size that you need. Most times you only need a few of them anyway.
Lets look at a method of cutting a few thin brass shim washers - " without bonding the farm for a "glass of milk," so to speak."
One method to cut circular brass shims is as follows:
- Firstly cut the shim stock "oversize" and then sandwich the brass shimstock between two flat pieces of scrap metal or metal washers. (plywood wahers should work too)
- Make sure you clamp the metal securely together.
- Now you can drill the thru-hole. If you then mount this on some type of arbor, (between scrap) you can turn it to your desired O.D.
Not the fastest method, but the finished brass shim stock washers turn out burr-free.
Watch out for the sharp edges.
