RE: Making a treadmill running deck
Message
Many higher end treadmills use a material called "phenolic".
I've built treadmills from scratch for research purposes and I find phenolic is the best. I tried UHMWPE (teflon generic) but it wears out, buckles etc.
You can buy sheets of phenolic from a local plastic supplier.
