Wedges and shims have been used for eons in the stone industry and are still among the most effective tools for splitting stone.
* Diameter of the hole given is smallest hole these can be used in. Wedges and Shims can be used in holes 1/4" larger than listed. Special sizes to order.

Shims and wedges are sold in sets.



Most stone will split cleanly if the proper breaking technique is used. Wedges and shims have been used for eons in the stone industry, and are still among the most effective tools for splitting stone. Here's how to use them:
Drill holes along your split line at least as deep as your wedges are long and about 6" apart. For more difficult splits, drill holes deeper and closer together. The tools should fit snugly in the hole. Your split line may be straight or curved.
Insert wedges and shims into holes as illustrated. Make sure the "ears" face the direction you want your stone to split.
Strike the wedges in sequence, firmly but without forcing. Wait a few minutes. Repeat until stone splits (clear the way!)
