I typically make spacers out of either aluminum or brass, for a more professional touch; however, many are using business card stock to make the spacers. It works just as well.

As a point of reference, I make mine about 0.020" thick. This has worked well for me.

LOCO is more like it.
Yup, business card stock is what I was using. Sometimes one thickness was the answer, sometimes two thicknesses was the answer.
