Shim Washers – What are They?
A shim washer is a small circular component that is used to fill a gap within a mechanical device. If there are gaps between different parts inside a mechanism, the risk of unwanted movement is significantly increased. If movement occurs within the empty gaps, there is a high chance that the interiors could be damaged or eroded. By placing a shim washer in the gap, you are filling any unnecessary spaces, and reducing the movement of other components. Therefore, it helps to protect your project’s interior, and potentially make it safer to use.
