Poor guys over at the asylum trying to figure out how to move heavy speakers

Thought any other happy Herbie's gliders owners might want to help them out. I am absolutely thrilled at the way the titanium giant gliders let me move my 650# loaded rack on carpet when doing cable swapping or contact cleaning by myself, all the while serving up better sound. But on that board, I am just a voice in the wilderness.

BTW, Steve, I currently have my VPI SSM on a 28" x 18" x 4" maple platform sitting on 2" tall Mapleshade cork/? isoblocks. I want to replace the blocks with Herbie's stuff. The table + platform weigh about 225#.  They rest on a substantial 2" x 60" maple shelf in a Steve Blinn rack. I want to keep the platform under the table because it gives me a small bit of workspace without scratching up the beautiful shelf, and it give me space to support the duct cover. What do you suggest I use to replace the isoblocks?

Thanks for all the good and affordable stuff.

Grungebuster Dots are usually the cat's meow between maple platform and shelf. With a 225-pound load and very wide footprint,  I'd recommend considering six 1.5"-diameter Extra-Thick grungebuster Dots.
