I have a few hives where the standard wood entrance reducer is too high and will not fit between the bottom board and the brood box above it. Its about 1/8" too high and I don thave a saw to reduce it. Any suggestions?

put it in front of the entrance. The bees usually will not push it out of the way.
That would be my favourite quick-fix method. Alternatively, raise the brood box by inserting strips of 'something' underneath it - say, 3/16 inch plywood. (which you should be able to cut with a utility knife)

I use 3/4x3/4 in different lengths for different times of the year. They just propolize on the top outside and bottom inside and it's stuck until you remove it. I would lose my bees every summer if I used one of those because the biggest hole isn't big enough.
