Cast Iron Tub Foot Nightmare

Postby joyfullyj on Tue Nov 13, 2018 9:01 pm

I'm four days away from a function in my new house. The plumber tells me today that neither of the set of clawfoot feet will fit my tub. I have attached the markings. They are hard to read. I think I see an R and maybe a 05 42 with a 2 below it? Or 05 22 with a 2 under it. Then, there's a 5 at the other end but I think that is the length.

Ideas? I bought the tub second hand from a girl on facebook. She opted for a walk in shower instead of the tub. Help?
