    So I basically want a bed mat to cut into a 40" X 20" rectangle and put at the bottom of my toolbox to prevent stuff from sliding around, but I don't want to pay for an expensive bed mat just to use a tiny portion of it. I don't want something similar to whats in normal toolbox drawers as it is not thick enough, tough enough, or grippy enough for what I want. I really do want something just like a bed mat.

    Any ideas where I should look? I'll keep my eyes out on craigslist for a really cheap used mat I could hack up, but I'm unsure how long I may find myself waiting for one to pop up.

    If you have a farm supply store in your area, go there and look for rubber stall mats. They will probably be outside.

    They are made of recycled rubber and are about 4' x 6' x 1/2" thick. The one I bought has a diamond plate pattern on the front and drainage grooves molded into the bottom side.

    I bought one to use under our Bowflex machine and it works great.

    Here's a link to show you what I'm talking about.

    Buy the stuff people use to line the shelves of their Kitchen cabinets. It's really cheap you can get it lowes.
