I am need of some rubber bumper feet for my cutting boards. I found a supplier that can sell me 1440 bumpers for $165.03. That is about $.12 per bumper. I don’t think I can ever use 1440 of them though. So would anybody like to go in with me on this? I would like to try and get 4-5 people to reduce the price to about $40 each and still get a couple 100 bumpers. Here is the link to the bumpers that I have been looking at:

Please send me a message if you are interested.

Now I know some of you who make cutting boards say not to use feet, this way both sides of the boards can be used. I agree, but I have customers requesting them, so I need to have them available.

Indy:

I may very well be interested. See how many responses / cost / etc you come up with.

they do sell by the ‘sheet’
something like 72 for $30

How well do those bumpers stick to a cutting board since they have adhesive backing? I have never made a cutting board…but it would seem to me that washing it would cause a problem with the addhesive backing..

I usually get stainless screws and screw the rubber feet on. I dont trust the adhesive backing. Stainless steel screws work great.

Also, I have thought about the sheet for $30. But I could use more than 72, so I thought a few of us could go in and get more…..alot more for our money.

I usually buy mine from McMaster Carr with a metal washer embedded. They can be screwed down well and the screw won’t pull thru the hole.

here is what i use
for boxes and cab doors and drawers
just drill a 3/16” hole
and they pop right in

they do have some casting slag (minimal)
but a swipe with some sandpaper
and it’s done
they can be replaced and taken out
if needed for any future refinishing

Greg,

I’ve been using these bumpers and the company offers an extra aggressive adhesive backing so that they stay on, even after time and time again in the dishwasher. Might want to check it out.

I bought some adhesive ones at either Target or Lowes, that came in a pack of varying sizes. I’ve washed my board a few times, and they’re still good. My board has a salad bowl finish on it though, so that should give a good surface to stick to.

Have your say...
