I purchased two sets of floor mats from Rockler because they were on sale and I got free shipping. Each set was $20 for 20 square feet (6 pcs) which is pretty cheap at $1/sq. ft. I place them around my workbench but I don’t put them in front of my table saw because they could be a trip hazard. I’ve used these for years at my other shop so while I only gave them 4 stars, I like the value enough to buy them again.
They provide some cushioning to the feet and protect tools that are accidentally dropped on the floor.
The interlocking feature is ok but not great. At times they come apart when sweeping or blowing air under them. And, overtime, some of the interlocking ends can tear off.
One of the things I like about the mats is they’re light enough that they lift up a bit when blowing dust/chips off so they’re pretty easy to clean up around.
I actually prefer the heavier, industrial grade mats shown below but they’re $15/sq. ft. which is out of my price range for floor mats. I would give these mats 5 stars for quality but 1 star on overall value.
