Product Description
NOTE: This is for a single shim. You will need to order two of these (one for each burr) to complete the mod. 

WARNING: The shim is designed to be thicker than the burr's hollow space. This is so that they can be sanded to a precise fitting. Please read all instructions before purchasing and installation. 

This is the shim spacer design by Home-Barista / Reddit user Jake_G. ​
It is used to achieve the "Alicon Alignment" on the Baratza Forté and Vario grinders. 

I am making jake_g's original stl available on Shapeways with no price markup so that other Forte owners may experiment with the alignment process. 

Jake_G has video guides on youtube:
