1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    If you need to raise it the most with factory shims, then you need a "50/65" shim and washer.

    Jim, I love you, but that information is wrong. The "50/65" will give the most and least drop.

    While that does sound logical, take a 40mm and a 50mm in your hand and you will see what I'm talking about.

    Yes, and the 50 is higher yet.

    PS: Jim...you are forgiven!

    I have a set of 50/65 shims that I will trade for something. Tron knows. These shims give the highest possible stock height.

    You aren't grasping the concept. The number on the shim is irrelevant. What determines the height of the comb is the difference between the numbers. 50/65 has a difference of 15. 42.5/42.5 has a difference of 0. The heel of the stock will be 7.5mm higher than with your 42.5 shim and 7.5mm lower if it were installed upside down.

    To further beat the subject to death, the number refers to the drop on a particular type of stock. The 50/65 is measured using a field/sporting stock;
    the 42.5/42.5 a parallel stock. The 50/65 would be something like a 30/45 on a
    parallel stock. The shims are tapered. The smaller number is the thin end,
    the larger number the thick end. 42.5/42.5 is not tapered at all.
