    I occasionally come across stall mats, used as flooring for hoofed farm animals, at Tr***** Supply. No experience with them. Anyone have any machine shop experience with them?

    Our guys have been using the stall mats at the Bridgeports for years now and really like them, but still use the duckboards on the manual lathes due to the different types of hot chips generated.

    You can use them to stand on when duck hunting.....provided the water aint too deep....

    I made mine from 1 x 2 pallet wood, spaced about the same apart, so it's easy to simply grind your feet a bit
    to get the chips to fall on thru.

    Don't want to take a flying run at the lathe though, the whole shebang can go sliding.

    They curl up if they get coolant on them
