My tiny basement shop has the concrete basement floor. I want to jazz it up with interlocking floor tiles.

But the machines are on rolling footmaster casters. If a heavy lathe or mill moves, I worry it will make channels in this floor.

What are my options? If you say epoxy, is that hard to do?

Epoxy is easy to do. The hardest part is etching and rinsing the etch before applying the epoxy. Another option would be vinyl composite tile, or vct. That is also easy and inexpensive (~$1/ sq ft). I did both in my basement. They bot make it feel completely different and finished.

This type of vinyl is easy to work with. It would seem durable but in a high traffic area, for example, under a kitchen chair the surface finish (the "grain") wears off leaving unsightly grey vinyl spots.
