    And with the 4 point system, if it still wants to wobble, I've put a "shim" (my shim is a rubber slipper) under one foot and it becomes very steady. Like she said: wider feet:more stable.

    Went to Bed,Bath,Beyond and purchased the store model (still pricey). Very nice. After he purchased me a new iron, he didn't want it to take a header any more than I did. It was the advice on this board that helped me make my decision. Many, Many thanks.

    Well my iron went out today. I think it was from being rocked off the board so many times. It was a Shark and I loved it. My back up is my Rowenta, which is heavier and doesn't seen to work as well as my Shark. So tomorrow I will be shopping for a new ironing board and iron.

    eimay, you were wise to by the ironing board for your new iron.

    Pack up your coupons. Maybe you can get both the iron and the board.

    I found an old one in very good condition at the thrift store. It is VERY heavy metal! It has the 4-point feet instead of the bars like the one shown. It does not MOVE at all when you are using it! :)

    I think I paid $5 for it!

    $47 seems like a lot of $$$, but you get what you pay for! Sure you can get one for under $10 but why??????

    Thanks for all of the advise. I did get a new one at Target. I paid $59 for it. But I just decided that I am tired of not having a decent ironing board. I just have to get used to the iron holder on the end. I also bought an additional pad to go it since the one on it was very thin. My next project is to make a square board to go on top of this for extra ironing space.
