Can you use two or three shims to increase angle for more lift ?

Asked by: Bob
you can use as many as needed. They are a little more difficult to handle than wood shims because they slide easily against one another.

microwave bracket

can I use this shim for a microwave bracket to push it out from the wall alittle bit. can you put a screw through it or will it break.. I am installing a new overhead microwave and need to level off under cabinets....
Asked by: scooby
Probably to late here but they should work fine. I've screwed many down to walls and floor, you might need to drill a pilot hole if the screw is a big screw.

Weatherproof shims

Can these shims be covered by dirt and left outside? need to shim a mailbox post where these would be placed between cement and the post, then covered with dirt. Would these be suitable to be left for years/decades underground or would they rot?

8 in. Composite Shim (Bundle of 12) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much easier to trim than wood shims For only a few cents more there is no reason to ever use the wood ones again. They don't rot Doesn't matter if they get wet They don't compress like work shims They don't split when you put a nail or screw through them They are consistent They slide easily They are easy to trim just by snapping They can support a lot more load than a wood shim only down side is that it seems to be a waste to use them to spread glue or stir paint, they again they are almost the same price as the wood ones.

I use these on many applications. I used it to keep my fridge from moving forward when i pull on the door. Also, great to level cabinets, etc. Pros: Easy to size (Just bend and snap) Cons: Not as effective as wood shims in some applications.

Because the concrete is directly on the ground I was worried about wood shims rotting and thankfully I ran across these in the store. Works perfectly, cuts well when finished leveling. use them just like regular shims.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shim I've ever used Its hard for be to believe I am this impressed by something as simple as a shim, however having installed many doors and windows I can say these composite shims are the best product on the market. They break as easily as promised, and are exceptionally strong, however those aren't their best attributes. The best thing about these shims is their consistency. Each shim is exactly uniform, unlike wood shims that have natural variances. No more matching up shims to get the right thickness. I know that when I grab one of these it will be exactly the same size as every other one in the pack, or the pack before, or the pack after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shim ever! This is the best shim I have every used. Never splinters, breaks easily and evenly. Would buy even if more expensive than the old wooden ones.
