Shimming a BXA tool holder to fit a AXA post

In my pile of tool holders that came home with my recently aquired lathe, I
found a couple of bxa's. I'll leave out how I was scratching my head
wondering why they didn't fit and all the no-name imports fit until I
connected that my post is AXA and these are BXA.
It looks like .022-0.025" shim on one dovetail would make them useable. Has
anyone ever done this?
