  1. I recently bought a second hand Brent SR-14 slab roller. It came without any shims. This might be a silly question, but I haven't used a slab roller requiring shims before... I usually roll my slabs to 1/4" thickness. Would I need to purchase the 1/4" shim or the 1/8" shim to get a slab thickness of 1/4"? Thanks in advance for any knowledge!
  2. I have had a Bailey Mini Mite slab roller for about 5 months. At first it worked great. I used it to make a ton of holiday decorations. I have used it about a dozen and a half times now but I am at the point where I practically have to pre-roll the slab and finish it off with the Bailey to get anything out if it. I keep the rollers wiped with a barely damp clean sponge after use. I am using soft clay (from a fresh bag) i have slammed and wedged, and i keep the first slab reasonably slim with a "ramp" at the leading edge. I run each progressive size thru the rollers at least 2 times before adding another shim. With just one small shim addition I find all the shims sliding ahead of the slab and/or the fold edge starts curling up. Am I forgetting to do something? Am I doing something wrong? Is there something I can do to the shims or rollers to keep them from slipping? Thank you in advance.
