I have recently started making bandsaw boxes and other small items and have come across a slight problem. I can’t find really small rubber feet or even just thin sheets of that non-slip rubber. The thinnest rubber feet/bumpers are 1.5mm thick which doesn’t sound like much unless you are dealing with a small object that fits in your hand. I have hunted some local stores and the internet and can’t seem to find anything at all. I have used the rubber scrap that is between the little rubber feet on the pad that they come on which is perfect but there isn’t much to it. Anyone know where I can buy adhesived backed non-slip rubber sheets that are between 0.5mm and 1mm thick or precut feet that thickness?

I usually put those little felt circles on the bottom of little boxes. You can find the rubber and felt feet at Home Depot and Lowe’s.

You could always use a forstner bit and drill a small recess to fit the thicker rubber feet into. Just an idea.

They also sell rolls of adhesive backed cork that is easy to punch out with a 1/2” hole punch.

duraco try the non skid foam and the rubber bumpers. I get very small bumpers from them.

I use thin leather and a Harbor Freight gasket punch set. Attach with contact cement. Those gasket punches and contact cement would work well with rubber as well.
