Frequently Asked Questions
 Q: Will you fit the correct dowel screws if I send you an original leg.
  A: Yes, we can do that. Buy the legs via eBay, then send us an email request and pop the leg in the post to us, with a covering letter. We will return the leg to you.
 Q: What address do I use for the returned items?
  A: We only have 1 factory, located at: Unit 11, Newbattle Abbey Business Park, Newbattle Road, Dalkeith, Midlothian. EH22 3LJ.
 Q: Why can I not get the legs to tighten. The legs only screw in about 1 turn then stop and thus the legs are wobbly?
  A: We supply our legs with 8mm diameter dowel screws and it sounds as though you have old fashioned Imperial fittings (probably 5/16") in your furniture. These 2 sizes look similar but are incompatible. Return them to us together with one of your original legs and we will fit the correct dowels for you. Don't forget to include a brief note.
  A: At the top of this page just click on "About The Seller" then at the top of the next page , click on "Business Details" to get our EMAIL address and CUSTOMER SUPPORT phone number.
 Q: How do I fit a T-Nut?
  A: The T-Nut fits into a hole in the TOP of the wooden frame. It MUST NOT be a tight fit. Find a suitable location then drill a hole 12mm diameter for the T-Nut. Put the T-Nut into the TOP of the hole & tap in with a hammer if you have access, otherwise hold the T-Nut while you screw the leg in from the BOTTOM of the frame and tighten carefully.
 Q: Can I pay by cheque since I don't have a PayPal account?
  A: Yes, you can pay by cheque if all else fails. However you do not need a PayPal account to use PayPal, since you can pay with any Credit or Debit card - just like buying groceries in a supermarket. Using PayPal protects your card data and avoids the delay of waiting for cheque clearance.
 Q: I overtightened the legs while fitting them and now the dowel screw is loose in the wooden leg?
  A: The best solution is to carefully remove (unscrew) the dowel from the leg, gripping it in the mid-point. Remove any debris from the hole then put some glue in the hole before refitting the dowel. Use Araldite or a good quality glue because this needs to be strong. Allow the glue to set fully before refitting the leg.
 Q: I fitted your legs to my furniture but they appear to be wobbly.
  A: THE T-NUT MUST NOT BE ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE LEG. These legs do not wobble if correctly fitted and are tight against the wooden frame. Perhaps the dowel screw is too long - check it against the previous legs. Did you fit the T-Nut correctly? Remember the leg screws through the wood rail THEN into the T-Nut. Email us via eBay.
 Q: Can you make these items shorter or longer?
  A: It may be possible but it is not as easy as it looks. Email us in the first instance. However, many of our products are already made in different heights (lengths) so just look through our eBay shop and select the most suitable height for your application. All the items in our shop have been grouped into HEIGHT categories for your convenience.
 Q: Will you produce 4 legs to my own design.
  A: We are woodturners so we can make any TURNED item you require. However, producing only 4 legs to your design will probably add at least £45 to the cost of buying 4 similar standard items. Email via eBay in the first instance as we need to assess each project.
 Q: I cannot find the colour I want listed. Have you got other colours in stock?
  A: We list, in our eBay Shop, all the colour finishes we have in stock and to see them, just type the Item Code eg "E142" into the SHOP SEARCH box. The Item Code always begins with "E" and is in the Listing Title. Our stockholding exceeds 38,000 items so you can normally find a suitable alternative finish within our stock range.
 Q: Do you combine orders to minimise delivery costs and WHAT IS YOUR PHONE NUMBER?
  A: Yes, where possible. Request an Invoice if you are making multiple purchases. Unless we receive one payment then we may be unable to combine your purchases, because we process orders as payment is received. Our PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL: click on "About the Seller" at the top of this page, then click on "Business Details" at the top of the page.
 Q: How do I fit these legs to my furniture?
  A: Your existing legs should just unscrew. Please ensure that our standard 8mm diameter dowel screw is the correct size for your furniture. Our INFORMATION website: HowToFitLegs should answer all your questions. We have developed solutions to ensure that our legs can be fitted to virtually any wooden furniture. Email us via eBay messaging for help.
 Q: Do you combine shipping?
  A: Yes. Our maximum charge is £8.60 within the UK Mainland only. If eBay fails to combine the shipping then we automatically refund excess charges daily. Delivery needs a signature so ideally use your work address or supply details of garden shed etc where the parcel can be left. Please do this at the time of ordering. Email us via eBay Messaging.
 Q: When can I expect my order to arrive?
  A: Free delivery is via Royal Mail so allow at least 2 to 5 working days. We use a Courier for next-day delivery if selected (weekdays only) however parcels can take 48 hours and it will always take 2 days to remoter parts of Scotland. Guaranteed Next-Day delivery is very expensive but you can get it on request. All UK locations are normally tracked.
 Q: How much is the Shipping and Handling Charge?
  A: Shipping is based on weight. For UK Mainland only we have a limit of £8.60 per order. We also have to buy the packaging and our despatcher, who can process 6 orders per hour also has to be paid, plus VAT on the total. Each despatch costs our company more than we charge. Hardwood legs are heavy & expensive to pack correctly and ship internationally.
 Q: Do you ship internationally?
  A: Yes, we ship Worldwide. We have negotiated low air freight rates for most European locations. Email with the item details for a price and be sure to include your full address. (Surface mail is actually more expensive than these Air Freight rates.)
 Q: How can I tell what screw fitting my furniture has?
  A: Most modern UK furniture has 8mm diameter screw fittings. You cannot determine this just by measuring across the top of the screw thread. You need to get hold of a KNOWN 8mm standard machine screw (try B&Q) and see if it fits your furniture. If it is the correct diameter then it will fit easily without using any tools. 10mm is also used in the UK
 Q: I have PUSH-FIT castors at present - can I fit your legs?
  A: We supply T-Nuts with each leg which can be fitted easily to wooden rails under 35mm thick. Remove the existing socket by levering it out. Drill the hole out to 12mm dia. Fit the T-Nut into the TOP for the Wood Rail, tap it in with a hammer, then screw the leg into the T-Nut from the BOTTOM of the rail. See our website HowToFitLegs for help.
 Q: I cannot get access to the TOP of the hole to fit the T-Nut.
  A: We can supply a threaded insert called an E-NUT. Drill a 12mm dia. hole, longer than the length of the Dowel Screw on the leg. The E-Nut is screwed into the wood using an Allen Key. It must be set as far into the wood as possible to give it strength. For 35mm length dowels, set the E-Nut 25mm deep into the wood. The leg screws into the E-Nut.
 Q: Do you supply 10mm dowel screws
  A: YES. Please email in the first instance via a "Contact the Seller" request. Then at the PAYPAL checkout also request the 10mm dowels (send a "Message to Seller".) We do not supply 10mm T-Nuts. If you have asked for 10mm dowel screws then we assume it is because you are certain your furniture already has 10mm fixings.
  A: WE NORMALLY RESPOND TO QUERIES WITHIN 4 HOURS MAX. So PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPAM (Junk) FOLDER where you will probably find our emails. We regularly find customers have incorrect security settings and this stops mail getting to them. Phone us and even if we are busy we will ALWAYS return your call during office hours.
 Q: Will you polish 4 legs to a different colour for me.
  A: Sorry, but we cannot offer that service. However, we may have the legs you require available unpolished and if so, you could easily polish them yourself - it is not difficult. The legs will be listed in our eBay shop if they are available unpolished. It is possible to re-stain our polished legs simply by gently sanding prior to applying stains.
