(I posted in the other forums as well as some people don't subscribe to all the forums.)
If you look at Steve Latta's discussion of cutting accurate rabbets in FWW #301, you will see a set of really nice push pads on the top of page 58 with a "thick rubberized surface that grips well"
I emailed Steve Latta and got referred to Jerry Forshee who makes these for the Marc Adams Schools of Woodworking. He'll have a batch of these done soon and has said he is happy to receive orders from the Guild. They are $45.00 plus shipping. His contact information can be found below. Thought some of you may be interested in these.
FYI - the pad material is the same that is used to make grout floats. The material probably comes from a company named Goldblatt. I didn't see that they sold the pad material separately but I didn't dive too deeply into it.
Jerry's contact information is below.
