Table LegsPosted by John Paulsen at March 23. 2005
Matt (or anyone for that matter)
Do you know a local supplier in the Seattle area that has table legs in stock? I'm looking for something semi-industrial...like round steel...something I can put some castors on...I'm in the process of putting together a dining table...but I need a source for legs. Have you ever been to the castor store just N. of the Aurora bridge on the W. side of the street? Grainger might have something too...Ikea DOESN'T have what I want...

I can't think of anyone that has em in stock off hand, but it would be easy enough to have the legs fabricated (call Craig at MetalMasters). I haven't ever been the the caster place, but have always wanted to drop in...they have a website as I recall...

john--we had those custom made for those tables by Metalmasters. I am pondering another order of them--let me know if you are interested. The price goes down as the volume goes up.
Re: Table LegsPosted by John Paulsen at April 26. 2005
Yes, depending on price...I might be very interested. Do you have any detail photos of the legs that you could share...maybe generate some more orders if you posted details here...either way...I'd be interested...just want to see better photos...particulary how they attach to the table top.
you can send e-mail to my quirky Yahoo! acct...
(the name comes from my Honda Metro scooter...it was sick at one point and I had to create a log in fast so I could ask a question on a Yahoo! group)

I don't think I have a photo of the leg attachment, but it is a SS plate about 3 x 3 with 4 holes for screwing it to whatever surface. Okay, I will talk with my fabricator and see what kind of pricing I can get. I will post some details and photos, and see if I can get others interested.

Sounds Good! Let me know...

after fighting over quality with 2 welders i ended up building my own for my furniture line. one of the regected designs is a true hairpin and the other is a hairpin with a big foot that holds a leveler. anyway, i built the jigs to do the hairpins and i can do them in a few heights. if anyone has an interest, i would be happy to make some up. i have been thinking about cranking out a few at some stock sizes to see if they would sell online. the ones i did have a nice stout 3/8 round bar brazed to a flat plate. they kick out a about 8-10 deg. (i worked from the photos of the case study stuff)
i will take some better photos on sunday and post them to this thread.(the only photo i have now is a detail of the bench corner) as for price, the metal workers that did them for me got $15-$22 per leg depending on the size in cold rolled steel. i can do them in stainless as well.
email if you would like some.

I finally got a price, from the fabricator I normally use, for the stainless hairpin legs: $35
Sounds like Ian has a better deal...

I just wanted to mention that I ordered 6 hairpin legs from Ian and they look great! I can't wait to use them.
