    question for Gidget & Gidget 2 owners

    I just received the acrylic insert for my Gidget 2 table...love the setup. I have a question though. Do you find that it's not slippery enough? Do you use a slider as well? I was hoping I wouldn't need one, but it does seem like it may drag a bit. I've got one of those flexible cutting mats that I used prior to having the table, and that worked pretty well for me, so I may try that on this one. My original Supreme Slider needs to be replaced and I just haven't had the extra $ to spend on that yet.

    I'm just curious what the rest of you do to make it more slippery. I did hear of Sullivan silicone spray, but have not found it locally. Any suggestions on where I might find that?

    Try a teflon sheet that you can get in the housewares department. I understand that these work just as good and are a lot cheaper.
