    i think you may need to get some flat plate cut to size with a hole with a nut welded on the bottom/inside of the round plate, maybe take it to like a machine shop down the road from you, I'm sure they'll have a few scraps they can run thru a lathe pretty quick for you.

    i THINK all in all about 1 ton if not more, i donr mind spending a bit more for a thicker plate if it is going to be safer,(ill rather overkill)

    5mm over 4 legs should be fine. The plate needs to fit the bottom of the leg. Not the hole but the leg. So a portion of the leg wall rests on the flat plate
