    • Hello Mundo,

      thanks for your comment.
      is it the feet pipe too thin? the steel chair frame should be at least 1.0 – 1.2 mm thick.
      you have to find the welding machine and hire staff to help you to repair that,
      the staff should have 1 year or more welding experience.
      after welded, need sand and polish, then powder coated again.
      many manufacture process there.
      hope this can help you.
      any questions feel free to let me know.
      thanks in advance.

      Best Regards
