Don’t spend a lot on a pad for routing etc.

Look for grip drawer liners whole roll 20 in. x 4 ft. for about $6. Depot or Lowes. They work great.

Router pads look a lot like some brands of carpet pad. I think that is because they are actually made from carpet pad. I got a lifetime supply for free by asking the installation guy one time when we were getting carpet. He had a zillions cut offs in his van headed for the dumpster.i use the stuff for other things as well, such as a strip to keep the edge of a piece of stock from hitting the screw and guides on my bench vise.

I don’t mind spending the $$ for the open weave pads (maybe $12 at a big box store)? They last a long time if you don’t hit them with a router bit, they clean-up nice and roll tighter for storage (I think mine is smaller than the size of a Pringles can).

Have your say...
