Yes, I'm Souperdoo, too. Always nice to hear people find some of the videos useful; thanks!
Well, lessssehere... Let's speak English for a second.
The intake spec is .004"-.008". That's .1-.2mm.
The exhaust spec is .006"-.010". That's .15-.25mm.
Yours, in both cases, are not passing a .13mm feeler. That means they are tighter than .005" but looser than .004".
I think that you don't need better precision. You've got .03mm, which is .0012". That's fine enough!
What you do want to do, though, is reset your valve lash because it is too tight. You're at the ragged edge on the intake, but under spec on the exhaust. And you want to set the lash to the high side, so .2mm on the intake and .25mm on the exhaust.
I'd say (not knowing exactly what your clearances are on both intakes and both exhausts), that you'd be looking at reducing the shim sizes by two on the intake and by three shim sizes on the exhaust. Of course, you need to calculate that exactly for each valve. If a shim size would put me just over the high limit of lash, I'd do it.

On the way downtown I stopped at a bar and had a couple of double Scotches. They didn't do me any good. All they did was make me think of Silver-Wig, and I never saw her again.
'How' are words so important they cannot be too often used.
