If all else fails, Schedule 40 PVC pipe has a 1/16" wall thickness. It makes a perfect shim for a front derailleur that's one size too big. A 1 1/2" long piece works perfectly.
I bought a wrong-size front derailleur (doh!) and used a PVC shim to make it work. It's still there, working perfectly, 6 years later.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
