Default Non slip router mats.

Are the non slip router mats the same as the mats you buy to put on kitchen cabinet shelves?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I use the kitchen mats from time to time and they seem to work OK.

Probably not but that is what I use. Most likely lots of others do too.

I use the non-slip drawer liners from the dollar store - rolls of 12" x 60" for $1.00 - don't get much cheaper than that.

I can`t tell if that stuff is the same thing mechanics use to line their tool box drawers but I have that and what Lee Valley sells for a router mat and the one from Lee Valley is superior to what I use in my tool boxes.

I'm confused.
Why does a router need a non slip mat?

I use the drawer liner from Harbor Freight. 18" x 72" Mesh Nonslip Drawer Liner
Works great for me and cheap.

If you put your work piece on a non slip mat (say to do edges) you don't need to clamp the work piece down. The mat prevents the piece from sliding around. I've done this a number of times. The only thing you have to ensure is that the router bit depth is shorter than the thickness of the workpiece so it doesn't bottom out on your table or surface
