Sheet stock

rubicon_nm said:
Anyone know of a good source for shoe cleat shim material?
A good hardware store would have aluminum sheet stock in different thicknesses that you could easily cut to shape and shave to thickness if required. Alternatively you could use ABS or polycarbonate sheet, or maybe even rigid PVC. A plastics supplier that sells retail might be listed in your phone book, or maybe you could find a wholesaler who would tell you where to get the stuff retail. Arts & Crafts stores might be a source.

Sheet styrene

I found some sheet styrene at a hobby store but I'm worried it will compress.
Well styrene is a liquid, so I assume you mean polystyrene. Unless it's foam, it won't compress, but depending on the formulation, it can be very brittle. If it is white, then it might be impact polystyrene (modified with rubber to make it tough) and that might work. If it is clear (regardless of color) then it is probably too brittle to work in this application.
