I haven't tried a metal shim (don't have one), but I've just been running a piece of thinner cardstock, like Bazzill or American Crafts through it as a shim (some ugly color I don't want anymore like gross dark purple) and roll it back and forth 4-5 times. It's kind of a pain, but it works for me and my Big Shot. I've only had it since last Christmas, and I do need to replace the "chewed" up plates, but so far, that's all I have to do with the more intricate dies. Here's my "sandwich":

Multipurpose platform+cutting plate+paper+die+shim+top cutting plate
