Just wanted to take a moment and say thanks to all the great folks on this forum.

I have only been a member for a short while but thanks to you all I have:

Just installed my cow pad in my workshop ….. works great!

Just ordered my first ROS (DeWalt)

and have not only learned how to use a hand plane but how to (and did) restore old ones (not sure I want to thank you for that one) :)

A cow pad – a pad for a cow, no? I am sure my dvm has one. :)

A belated Welcome!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Waho6o9 you got it. Also known as horse pad. 1/2” thick super heavy padding. Because it is a solid piece 4’ x 6’ it clrans easily and is very nice on these old feet.

Never heard it called a cow pad, only an anti-fatigue mat. And I’m not French, I’m in Texas.

I purchased the rubber mat from Blaine’s Farm and Fleet. The young girl could not find the item to give me a receipt. We found it listed as “cow pad”. Hence my description / name.

I am just a city boy … what do I know?

it probably works well when you hoof it to your shop.

Especially for the day when your milking it

Well anyways, welcome, and we’ll expect to see some of those plane restores!!
