    I am changing my spindle from a Bosch Colt to a Dewalt. I'm assuming some shimming is required. Can anyone point me in the right direction ? Does anyone make a set of shims for the OB spindle mounts, or should I just do a little jury rigging. I measured the mounts and the spindle and came up with about a 2mm difference which would mean a 1mm shim is needed. That sound 'bout right?

    Here at the shop, we've used metal flashing and wrapped it around the inside of the mount to make up for the difference.
