Default Latex Foam Rubber

Does anyone have a good source of where to buy sheets of this?
I know we can get it on Tower, Was hoping there was a better priced option and perhaps larger sheets available somewhere.
Mainly using 1/4 and 1/2 inch.

You could try some carpet underpadding. Different areas carry different types, but I have seen some that look useful for battery packs and receivers. I think Dubro and Hitec carry it with a price tag. I liked the Hitec stuff with the cloth and velcro wrap, but have not seen it for a few years.

What you find at Wal Mart is cushion foam, which isn't going to have the vibration dampening properties of the latex foam.

Agreed, I checked walmart and couldnt find any of the latex foam. Checked HD also but they were a bust as well.
Im going to stop by a local upholstery shop and see if they have anything available.
