New Gets

I picked up a couple of sets of Lee Valley's Multi-Wedge Shims.

I first bought a set about two and a half years ago. I felt a little odd about buying something the shop generates as scrap. However, the wide face for lightly hammering on works better than home-made wedges. The polypropylene is kind to soft MDF moldings, and, when used as a trio, will remove trim without damage.

These are the remmnants of my first set after a large kitchen remodel. They hold up well, and the tip can be reformed with a file. Also, the $4.95 price tag means you can leave the one that fell behind the corner cabinet for the next renovater.
