Hip to be square!

I ordered a few square rubber tiles from RubberFlooringInc.com for the space in front of and behind my table saw.  I also purchased three squares for the region directly in front of my jointer.  I did this for two reasons: to reduce fatigue and to prevent dropped tools from being destroyed/damaged.  I am so glad I did this!  What a huge difference this makes walking on them.  This is something I wished I did a long time ago.

I ordered four more squares today because I forgot about the area in front of my drill press.  Those will be here in a few days!

    I get something similar from Harbor Frieght.
    It probably isn’t as durable as the stuff you ordered, but it is dirt cheap and really saves the knees standing on that concrete floor all day.
    I put a double thick layer in front of my table saw and it has helped a lot.
    Thanks Brian.

      My Harbor Freight is a little bit out of the way, but I should make an effort to get in there. This is one of those shop upgrades that really helps but gets overlooked too often.

    I will have to check them out, i bought a package of multicolored mats from Sams Club a while back and am very pleased, other than the color.
