Cheers Irene I've heard of people doing that. I think I'm OK but will give it a try if, when the legs are dry, I can still feel lumps and bumps of rust!I use araldite rapid, the one that has two equal dispensing tubes, I apply it with the tip of a cocktail stick. Once it is fully dried it is over to Steve who flattens it back with different grades of wet and dry, ending with the finest. We have had great success this way.
Steve does advise to use a stanley blade first to any pits, to take off any flakes that might get missed with wire wool or wet and dry.
