Re: Push Blocks

Tom from Woodshop Nerdery posted a video on YouTube where he used tool box drawer liner as a pad replacement.
In addition to replacing the pads he added a “ heel” to one of his pushblocks.

Re: How do you guys do it??

I looked at both epoxy flooring and vinyl tiles for my garage floor. In the end I chose to go with the vinyl tile option. As has been mentioned, when done “properly”, installation of epoxy flooring can take several days. I wasn’t to thrilled at the thought of leaving all of my tools outside while wa...
