  • PRECISION BRAND® Sof' Shoe® shim solves angular soft foot alignment problems on motors, pumps, generators, turbines and other plant machinery in minutes
  • Sof' Shoe® shim cures angular soft foot and extends bearing and motor life
  • Sof' Shoe® shim is made of a proprietary elastomer which has unique flow and set characteristics to fill irregular gaps

  • Each Sof' Shoe® shim thickness has 12 percent flat compression under standard bolt torque, yet will absorb the angularity of nearly half its thickness
  • The yellow Sof' Shoe® shims are .045" thick, compress to .040" and absorb up to .020" of angularity
  • The Blue Sof' Shoe® shims are .020" thick, compress to .0175" and absorb up to .010" of angularity
  • Sof' Shoe® shim is stable to 225°F
  • The thickness tolerance of Sof' Shoe® shim is +/- .005"
  • Slot sizes of Sof' Shoe® shims are identical to PRECISION BRAND® Stainless Slotted Shim because they are used together in the alignment process
