OK, my Dungeon workshop has concrete floors, I hate them, my back hates them too, I have some mats on the floor and they certainly help, but... nothing beats a good wooden floor.
My floors are also very uneven, and my workshop is full of stuff
The other day Kyle mentioned that he was getting some stuff from an auction, the Tokyo American Club had a temporary facility for 3 years while they rebuilt the old club. One of the things he mentioned was some of the mats from the weight lifting area. Kyle got more than enough to cover his new workshop floor, and I got enough to do the Dungeon up in style! a big "Thank You" to Kyle! These mats are not the same thing you find in the BORG, they are the real deal, I figure that when all connected into one mat, I should have no problem rolling around machines on top of them, if, and that is a big "IF" the floor under the mats is flat and smooth, mine ain't
Once again, I'm looking at the LARGE job of putting a wooden floor into the Dungeon. I would go with sleepers on the floor, shimmed in the right places and insulation, and then thick T&G plywood on top, maybe even paint to seal things up Then the new to me weight room mats.

The stack of mats, there are 62 of them, some have the tabs busted off, but I'll need mats around the edge, so that's fine, some are fairly soft and wobbly, but others are hard like they are made from tar The mats are each about 60cm/24" square, and about 12mm/1/2" thick.
They are certainly good quality mats.
I guess I have to go the new floor route, oh well, it will be some serious exercise
One thing I plan to do is run some wiring under the floor, for my tablesaw and such, instead of tripping over cords.
I tell you, a workshop just never seems to be finished
I'll also say to anyone who is planing a shop, put down a wooden floor before you do anything else!
Oh yeah, I got four of these great deck chairs as well.....

about $5 each, used, but they are welded aluminum frames, plastic seats and powder coated, very nice, and boy are they big, I think both my wife and daughter could sit in one together!
Thanks again Kyle for spreading the wealth!
