Diamond Levelers vs Laminate Flooring - 03-14-2016, 04:54 PM



I just picked up a Diamond Professional circa 2001 and was wondering if I should put something down between the leg leveler and the wood-looking laminate flooring, perhaps some hard rubber cut to fit? Thoughts about material to protect the laminate versus just putting the table down on top of the laminate itself? I don't plan on going anywhere soon, so expect the table to be in this house as long as I might last...

Get some 1/8" neoprene, works great and prevents the table from sliding.

I've never seen it in person but in theory if my table had leg levelers id want them on those lazy Susan bearings I saw somebody post recently. Seems like leveling in the long run would be a lot less of a hassle. I'm not sure if your worried about friction when your leveling or just the weight itself, if that's the case a pad may not be the worst idea and I've always liked the look of an appropriately sized rug however I know there's issues there with settling.

The Diamond feet don't have to be turned like the Brunswick's do to adjust for level, the stud on the Diamond turns for adjustment.

Amazon has sheets of neoprene at pretty fair prices. Many different thicknesses and sizes.

Yep, that hole in the stud is where you stick a screw driver in and turn the stud raising or lowering the corner of the table, and the set screw is tightened to lock the stud in place.

So, I'm describing the neoprene rubber sheeting to my Wife, who says "Something like the elliptical mat?" I told her that was a great idea, I could cut four circular pads out of the far side that aren't being used to cushion the elliptical. Well, she didn't like that... Despite that disapproval, I wasn't able to find any local neoprene rubber sheets and wanted to get the slates out of the vehicle and on top of the table in a single move and sooner rather than later, so I ended up picking up a rubber covered high density foam yoga mat. It was on sale, I cut my four feet pads out of the end, squared it up, and now my 5' 2" Wife has a new exercise mat.
