I got tired of trying to trim my new bostonian with 1/64th shims and came up with an adjustable nose block using a dubro hinge. The hinge has a natural pinch point so when held flat it naturally wants to expand, which can be controlled with a couple of small screws. I am going to try and post some pics to better explain how it works. With the screws tightened down there is no side thrust. Loosed the screws and the side thrust increases. My bostonian is set up to adjust from 0 to about 10 degrees of right thrust. Turn it around 180 degrees and you can adjust from 0 to about ten degrees of left thrust. You can then shim for downthrust if necessary. Maybe someone else has already come up with the same idea. If not, it looks promising to me.
