Hello

Yes, I went to my local Ace store and found a box of special spacers in the nut and bolt area from Hillman.
I bought several sizes, then found a box of Grade 8 thick washers and bought several of these washes as well. I got all these as close as I could in the thickness I needed.

I had to use a combination of the 1 spacers and 1 washer to get it close.

The just used a piece of metal sanding paper on my table and removed some of the thickness of one of the washers by rubbing it back and forth till a got a fit with .001 gap.

Every Brompton will be different in the distance measurement because Brompton does not hold a tight tolerance in the area,

Rick
