Need Jet shims

Does anyone have some shims they could send me? I only need 4. They're cheap, but nobody near me (1200 miles from home) carries them, and I don't want to pay $8 shipping to order a $2 set of parts online. Thanks.

BTW I'm still up in NJ from Strange Days so if anyone is up near there or Warwick, I can stop by, save the hassle of shipping.

I think either a 2-56 or 4-40 flat washer works well....I think the smaller size is the correct one.

Yeah, no radio shacks near where I live. The ONE near where I'm staying in NJ didn't have what I needed. Radio Shack really went downhill in the last few years. I know they're closing/relocating shops, that's fine, but they stopped carrying basic electronic components to build your own shet and they're more of a cellphone shop now. Disgusting. How the heck are kids supposed to build their own crystal radios?

Anyway....

Nitrospaz, how far are you from Newton or "Greenwood Frickin Lake"? I'm still here in NJ since Strange Days so maybe I could grab them, or maybe I'll steal some from KC since I think you're between me and Wolfie's...? I need to go up there for him to mount my new tires anyway.

I had hardware store washers before, but they were no good. One isn't enough. Two is too much. #2 washers are the right thickness, but won't fit the needles. I'm surprised how finicky they are, but that's why they come in 1/2 mm increments...
