Where to find metal foot rings for bar stools?

Looking to build several bar stools for a friend. Want to add the metal rings around the legs for foot support. Does anyone know a source where these can be found?

Re: Where to find metal foot rings for bar stools?

What style of bar stools are you building ? If your looking for the chrome tubular rings.Stop by your local bar/resturaunt and ask,they usually have a few broken one's in the back room.They may need cleaned up a bit,but you may get them for free.  Or another option would be to have your local steel supply,or fabricating shop run a piece of 1/4 x 1 flat stock thru a set of rolls and form a circle, and use that for your foot rest.

As a young sailor, and having looked up at stools from a horizontal position in many a bar, I can say that most are fabricated in house. However, this after market unit may be cost effective:
