Cutting Mat on Steroids
I noticed several threads where cutting mats questions/comments were made mainly cost, size, and where to purchase. If you have difficulties getting a mat which fills your needs you may wish to consider the following product available from Tractor Supply in store or online.
Currently selling for $6/foot in 4 foot width, so depending on your needs a 2' X 4' mat would only cost $12. Made from recycled rubber tires at 1/4" thick this mat is commonly used in cattle trailers and horse stalls. If you have ever witnessed a horse kicking a stall your question about durability will be answered. For you who haven't try cutting the tread on an old tire. Never worry about slipping either the 1/4" thick mat is heavy enough you'll think twice about moving it around.
The 4' X 6' X 1/2" $40 is about all one man can move or drag. Some was left over from our stock trailer which I cut up on my bandsaw to place under stationary tools to reduce noise and vibration. The rubber must be cut with a skilsaw or other power tools. Ed
