BLADEMATCH Arbor Shims (6-pack)
BLADE ALIGNMENT SYSTEM

Achieve perfect alignment with every blade in your shop.

Changing saw blades effectively changes the distance from the blade to the fence, making the fence scale inaccurate, and your riving knife dangerously misaligned. BLADEMATCH Arbor Shims offset variation in blade thickness, aligning every blade to the same cut line.

So accurate, you'll be splitting atoms.

BLADEMATCH Arbor Shims (6-pack)
Step 1

Calibrate your saw’s fence scale and riving knife with your thickest blade, then cut a test piece.

Step 2

Without moving the fence, cut test pieces with thinner blades, and measure the difference between them and the test piece cut with your thickest blade.

Step 3

Combine arbor shims to equal the measured difference.

Table Saws

The GRR-RIPPER was built for the table saw. It acts as a moving blade guard, shielding your hands from the saw blade through the entire cut. Right out of the box, the GRR-RIPPER can cut stock down to ¼” x ¼”. Because it provides 3 directions of control, your cuts will be cleaner and more precise.

Router Tables

The GRR-RIPPER provides incredible command over your workpiece on the router table. Whether you’re using the fence or freehand routing, its powerful grip controls stock and protects your hands from dangerous spinning bits.

Jointers

The GRR-RIPPER’s proprietary Green GRR-RIP material provides all the traction you need to properly flatten stock on the jointer. Because of its powerful grip, you can feed material over the cutter head without having to apply too much downward pressure.  The GRR-RIPPER makes proper face-jointing technique easy, and safe.

Band Saws

The GRR-RIPPER's legs and main body maintain a constant 90 degree angle. It can be used on its side which is ideal for resawing on bandsaws. The GRR-RIPPER glides along the table top and applies even pressure against the fence with your hands clear of the blade. Even pressure means less blade drift, resulting in smoother cuts.

Got questions?

Do I really need Arbor Shims?

If you use one saw blade for every cut, no.  If you use a variety of blades for different types of cuts, absolutely.

What do they do?

Changing from a full kerf blade to a thin kerf blade effectively changes the distance between the blade and the fence, resulting in a misaligned riving knife, and an inaccurate fence scale.  BLADEMATCH Arbor Shims allow you to maintain a constant cut line, regardless of the blade’s kerf width.  This keeps your fence scale reliable, and your riving knife in proper alignment.

It’s such a small difference, does it really matter?

When talking about thousandths of inches, the problem can appear negligible.  However, in terms of joinery, .010” may as well be the Grand Canyon.

What if I get my blade(s) sharpened?

Sharpening a saw blade will certainly affect the kerf it cuts.  Adding Arbor Shims to offset the difference will ensure accuracy of the fence scale and mitigate the dangers associated with a misaligned riving knife.
