Need I say more ?
unit, it had a 90 degree turn in it, and we had to build the steps out of ESM. That was fun...lemme tell ya...I got reeeeeealy good at cutting ESM with an angle grinder and bolt cutters, and also learned that you should always wear a welding jacket while cutting with the metal chop saw.
jig to build....
bit overkill in my opinion, you could probably get away with .049 1x3 or .060 1x2. Doing the hand rail will be a bit of a beast. Good luck with that... If it all ends up square you did something right...
The hand rail.... so the thought is, get a peice of 1" SST have it bent into a 6' diameter circle, tack it at the top pull it down like a spring tacking it along the way. I hope it works.
Derek, If you read this... could you moveit to the scenery thread. It was going to start as a rant about designers, but it might prove more informative than I thought.
That sounds like plan that could work, just going to be a slow process. This is going to be a project where you tack it up to death.
I get a lot of projects like that, is that why people call me tacky ?
No, that would be that leisure that you still wear.....
Just a thought - will a 6' diameter circle be long enough? (I can't view the .dwg file so I don't know the stairs diameter and the height...)
escape platform in place so I can put the finishing touches on it.
Looks like there will be 5 or so feet to spare, depending on your "ornamentation" or the ends of the rail at the top and bottom.
(Sounds like a cool project - way beyond anything I could attempt.)
If they were dwarvish treads would they be different on the outside edge.
ARRRR! Caught again. !
'though, in truth, they are sort of Dwarvish since they are tapered they look like they'd be happy wrapping around a column, or descending into the depths of Modor.
