    I'm about to get out my hot glue gun and zap the bottom of my foot pedal to keep it from sliding all over! I have tried that rubber stuff you can set wet dishes on...and, it doesn't stop it. I think it is the angle I actually push the pedal with(not sure) and the little boxes I have seen for over $20 at Clotilde look like they actually raise up the pedal-higher then it is now. What do you do??! My toes are tired of searching as I sit in position and ready to put on the gas...and, where's the darn foot pedal?!LOL Skeat

    I got those little thingies that are used to to set glass table tops on. I got the idea from our television stand, the top is glass and it sits on little rubbery thingies on the base of the stand.

    I bought some and put two on my machine foot and it doesn't move now. :) Sorry, I don't know what they are called, so they are 'thingies' to me. LOL

    I have carpet, so I put a little piece of Velcro down, the rough side.

    I will go to the hardware store and ask for 'thingies'LOL That sounds like a good idea...not having glass (they don't trust me!)I would have never thought of that....Thanks! SKeat

    What about those things you put on the bottom of your tub so you don't slip in the bath ? Put that on the bottom of the pedal ? Just a thought since you are on cement.

    I use the fabric that you put on the feet of baby's pyjamas so that they don't slip. It works great for me.
