Our legs ship with a slight amount of anti-rust soap residue to keep them from rusting during shipping. We recommend wiping them down with a mild degreaser before applying a clear coat or paint to ensure proper lasting coat.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if we can do anything to make your purchase decision easier. We can build any size legs that your project requires. We also do custom work so if you have an idea send it to us and we might be able to bring your vision to life.
