Woohoo, i just bought a new weight set off of craigslist.
Now I need some rubber mats for the garage floor. Something nice and thick, would 3/4" suffice?
I went by Home Depot and Lowes and they didn't have anything. Anyone know a good place to pick these up?
They have all kinds of work related mats. Not sure if they'll work for your application or not???

WOW! Grainger.com is really pricey. Not sure where you live but I would check into farming/livestock supplying stores. I think most people get horse mats at 3/4" to 1" thick. The mats will be heavy too so shipping is probably a fortune, better off picking them up locally.
"Fine, if I'm not allowed to light it on fire, can my imaginary friend?"
Shipping charges on buying through teh internet are insane. Go to a farm supply store and get horse mats. They go 4'x6'x3/4". I paid about 35 each for mine and they recently had them on sale for like 28.
If you know anyone that works at a large factory or some kind of power plant, you might see if they can get you some used conveyor belt.
I know..not everyone can do this, but it's worth mentioning.
My dad actually got me a HUGE pice of new conveyor belt, and can pretty much get me some whenever, for free. It's perfect. I actually use it under my electronic drums, but I'd squat or deadlift on it anytime. It's about an inch thick, and tough at nails.
Tractor Supply Store, they have them and reasonably priced. That is where the guy that rents my parents dairy farm got his for his cows, I bought a couple off him to have in my basement for some training!
Hey Guys, thanks! Went to a feed store today and picked up some stall mats (horse mats).
I took everything out of my 3rd car garage today, swept it out, hung everything up on the wall, set up my new equip, and got a great workout. I'm stoked.
