i m sorry but i am not getting this. how do you use this ? 2x4 are fuc ed up .how ?
I'm not sure I follow you, but I use these to shim wall studs that are out of plumb, and occasionally out of line. I staple them to the stud in question, usually stacking them in decreasing lengths. Spending 15 minutes doing this saves you much more time when tiling walls.

They're about 1/16" thick, 1.5" wide, 36" long. I buy them by the case at Menards. I use them to rake mortar out joints in mosaic tile. Ames here stocks the TrimTex.

Menards is the only place that carries them around here. They are handy for various things.

I like to use rapid set modified thinset. You need a couple good studs to pull from.

Those are pretty nifty shims.......need a pack of those on the truck.
