Some things are done with no perfect exactness, leaving spaces or gaps which can cause unnecessary movement to the object. The problem is addressed by using shims - thinner washers used to fill gaps or as spacers. Shims are used to precisely fill the space between components to achieve the truest possible fit within mechanical assemblies, thereby eliminating the need for grinding or machining.
