    My Saunders 14X17 easel has the underside latex/rubber whatever dried out so it now slides all over my base board.

    Does anyone have a source for somw nice new non-skid stuff? Wet suit latex maybe?

    I would suggest sheet cork.

    Drawer liner should work great.

    I glued strips of cork to the bottom of my easels. I had to clean off the old cork material first.
