I've sent him a PM. Hopefully I'll hear from him soon. Thanks
I just ordered his mini kit and had it in 3 days. Great deal for $20, although there are sizes I'll probably never use.

If you don't want to wait, go to a local pro shop. I bet you they'll sell you shims for cheap or possibly even give you some. Almost every pro shop has a boneyard of spare parts from broken/abandoned bows, bet you can find shims in those too.

I figure there will be unused pieces. I just don't want to buy the 200+ count set of Lancaster and have a plethora of shims I'll never use. Still waiting to hear back.

Well I bought a shim kit from the manufacturer....it came in a bag with about 20 shims, not a single mark on the bag. Boy, glad I have a micrometer....still paid $30 for it and I used 1 shim out of it and for the other one I needed I had to put 2 together that I had laying around from a Elite. Those shim kits are absolute rip offs...and cutting nylon is obviously not a science. I needed a .08....nothing even really that close. There was supposed to be one, but it was .073 and .087. I know we are talking a fuzz when it's thousandths of an inch.....but c'mon man. I hate shims and shim kits. I but you could run to the hardware store and get what you needed for much cheaper.

This is the mini kit I got from DBLungiT minus several I've used already. Deffinently worth the $20.

I'm over an hour away from any pro shop, so it's hard to find time to make the trip. I never though about looking at the hardware store, but I don't recall seeing any nylon bushings any other time I've been there. Won't hurt to go take another look!!

Jut wait for dblungit to respond. He works a full time construction job and will get back to you. Super guy to deal with. Just recently as a few days ago ordered a kit and received it very quickly.
