How much would you charge for one or two sets of shims to Europe/ UK?

I checked Germany, Italy, France, and England and they are all $15 shipping for one or two packs of shims. That's $2 more than the product costs.

Shimming is pretty dead simple. I use the Syntace shims since my hubs are 6-bolt. I have 3 sets of wheels for my gravel/commuter and do not need to adjust my brakes when swapping wheels. There is one wheel that requires a few clicks of RD tension adjustment, though.

I'm going to try modifying an inboard 1mm Shimano 10sd cassette spacer. The diameter just needs enlarging a smidgen to clear the CL spines.
The trick will be reducing the thickness evenly - assuming the shim needs to be less than a full mm.

Update: I can confirm that the cassette spacer works fine with a slight enlargement of the hole. Luckily the thickness was spot on for me to now swap wheels without the disc rubbing. Funnily enough the rear didn't need shimming....
