Think I am going to possibly end up going hybrid. I am pretty sure I will be doing all of my town and castle (when I get my castles next year) builds on 2 metal folding tables that are 3' x 7'. So I think instead of making all the pieces non slip I am going to find some n52 magnets. Something along the lines of 10mm x 2mm maybe? Need to get a good measure of the cavity on the streets and floors to see what will fit in there best and come in contact with the table after I glue them on.

You could replace the rubber feet with magnet sheet...

They have to be rubber as the sticky part stays attached to the surface. Silicone is famous for not sticking to anything but more silicone.

I hear you about it being difficult to find that exact thickness. Searching for .5mm might be easier because I don't think that the extra 1/10 of a mm will make that big of a difference.
Unless I specifically state that my information is directly from Valoria, my comments are just my own opinions.

Guess the hard part for me, is determining the thickness of those rubber feet on the factory pieces. I don't have micrometers to take one off and measure it.
They are 0.6mm thick. Just measured them.
Another question for the knowledge there, is it rubber or silicone? And wow, it is difficult finding .6mm

Honestly, I never liked them anyway. The pieces don't slide much even without the feet, and just causes concern if they peel off and are lost. It reminds me of the felt on the old resin pieces, though I like the felt to protect my table from scratchy resin if it were to slide. Other than that, all it does for me is reduce the loudness of the pieces as I place them.

Yeah sure could. Using a hole punch is exactly what I planned on using. I just hope I can find the micro thin rubber sheets/rolls to duplicate what they use on city building floors.

If you don't find anything to match the rubber circles, you could always buy sticky-backed felt and cut/hole punch it out.
