Default Re: Shaft size adjustment

There are also things called "Speedi-sleeves" available: they're designed for use where an oil-seal on a rotating shaft has grooved the shaft to the point where the oilseal no longer seals properly.

Basically they're a very thin-wall stainless steel tube with a 'top-hat' section on the end, which is used to force the sleeve on to the shaft then is cut away.

Not sure if they are available in 1/4-inch/6mm size but I've used a half-inch one to repair the propeller-shaft on an old putboard motor with impressive success.

RS sell them, though they're actually made by the Swedish company SKF.

Most machine shops should have shim stock as a standard item. It is also available from auto parts stores for shimming bearings.
For the amount you need, likely they might give you a small piece free.

The side of an aluminium Becks Bier can fished out of my bin is nominally 0.0044", ie around 0.11mm. Too thin for carrying liquid, but a useful shim.

Have you informed Becks that their can material is too thin for beer?

So, finally, an upside to the issue! Becks now on the shopping list!

As a member of CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale), I would suggest you try a better product, even if it is in a can and not a bottle. (I don't think that glass would be applicable in this case).
