It's been blatently obvious from the start of this thread that you have a enormously strong desire that this screen NOT WORK.
The seller has one very postitive feedback from a buyer, so presumably that person either found the screen useful, or is shilling for the seller.
Also, there is more than ONE WAY to shim. The shims may very well be capable of placement ON TOP OF THE SCREEN, the principle being that you can always use shims to make something THICKER.
Frankly, you may be right, the item may not be usable, but in that case I'm out thirty-five bucks and the Rolleicord remains as originally configured. On the other hand, you MAY be wrong, In which case I plan to tout this screen endlessly, and enthusiastically, as I suspect Eric may well do as well.
