I’ve been meaning to make one of these myself. Where did you pick up your shim stock?

i got my shim stock from ENCO there website is and i would recomend a thickness of at least 0.025” preferably 0.030 i have also found that chainsaw sharpening files and needle files work good for cutting small profiles

You might try old sawz-all blades, they are fairly thick and very tough steel.
