Is this the purpose of the taper shims I see the vendors sell? This would set the hub back a smidge towards the outside?

What fancy tool do you all use to tighten the front bearings up with? Aside from a open end wrench sitting on the flats at a 90 degree angle. The bearings spin freely on the threads and I know how tight to make the bearings. The bearing flat ends up too deep in the hub to wrench it.
