Thank you Bill,

Yes, I was thinking 3/32" square brass for the posts with a 1/8" cap rail. I've left enough room so that they can slide by the post. I was thinking a black iron finish.

Thoughts are welcome for the design of the posts around the beam opeining. I would like to have the rails curve around each end. Lots of time to think about that one  :D.

Looks fantastic John. Don't forget the OSHA approved handrails on the stairs though  :D

I don't have a set of those  :thinking:  I wonder if they are a bit big :headscratch:  Would I want to make one  :noidea:

It might be best if I borrow them to check   ;)

Thanks Ian, another good idea.  I assume you just twist a bundle of the wires together to form a "wick"?  Pretty sure I have some fine stainless wire around, either here at work or at home.

Final "running in" with all moving parts installed. Please let me know if this link works.

Hey Brian,

The video loaded OK for me and all the parts look real good in motion.

Because the west wall can be removed, it is easy to locate the mounting holes in the beamwork above for the second flight of stairs.

Nice set of castings - keep the door locked or Jo might wander off with them...!  :Lol:

Hope we can get a view of the film when it is done, sounds very interesting.
