How do you attach the feet to the sofa? Came without pre-drilled or tapped starter holes or a diagram.
Are you sure there are no existing holes? I have seen where they are actually covered by the material/felt that they staple to the bottom. On the other hand, if it doesn't have holes, try this. I will assume that the feet have a course type wood screw thread. Take a piece of cardboard and cut it to a 4" X 4" square, this should be enough to cover the corner of the sofa. (if not make it as big as needed) Locate the wood corner of the sofa and mark that area on the cardboard. Now you have a template for your feet. Given the center of the wood location on the cardboard, punch a hole through it. This is where you will have to hold the cardboard to the bottom and with a drill, mark a hole on the sofa. Repeat this for as many legs it has. Now judging what size screw the feet have is a matter of gauging it, like stick it into a straw, or next to a pencil. You want a drill bit smaller than the screw size. (15% smaller is good) When you drill the sofa wood, I suggest measuring the screw of the foot and mark the drill bit for that depth. (a small piece of masking tape around the bit will do fine- blue painters tape works better) Once you have drilled all required holes for the feet, proceed to screw them on. If they are a bit tight, or not going all the way in, use your drill bit and make minor adjustments to the depth or diameter of the drilled hole.
