Hi guy's

I don't know about you, but over the year's I have bought various non slip mat's to stop work piece's sliding around the bench whilst sanding or routing. All of them are like a woven rubber type fabric, and although they work well the first couple of times that I use them, none of them grip my work bench and the work piece anymore.

Has anyone had the same problem as me, and if so have you found a solution?

Al.

Ah yes Big Al me! I pop mine in the washing machine every now and then on a cool wash and it works fine again. HTH.

P.S. Do it when 'she' isn't around or it could end up costly! LOL.

Just in case anyone wants some router matting, I bought 2 pieces 1400x300mm each from Turners Retreat 2 for £5. I believe the offer is still on.

​Cheers.

Doug
