None of what I said was b%*l+-&ks.
I don't think anyone thought what you said was b*ll*cks. However this forum has only a handful of members that post, maybe a dozen who browse and only one that was actually making a handrail. Don't confuse 'views' with actual people and don't mistake a lack of feedback as a lack of interest. Most people love reading this sort of thing but have nothing to add. That's the internet.

Thanks for sharing.

Those who have been following this thread will know I introduced my solution for a forum members handrail problem, on page one of this thread, I can say my faith in the tangent handrail system has been tested over the last few weeks. I’m glad to say after proving my handrail drawing by making the practice piece faith is now fully restored, and it’s not hard to do, it just takes practice. In a few years this system will be forgotten, and I think that is a tragedy.


Keep the faith

My thoughts exactly. I’ve watched this thread with interest but don’t imagine I’ll ever build anything like this myself.

I would agree except I think more people view than just members.

Can anyone answer this , how many members on this site are tradesmen? Carpenters joiners etc
And how many diyers, men in sheds, etc . The reason I ask is I have other past projects I’d like to post, but they wouldn’t really be of interest to none tradesmen and don’t want to waste my time, if they are not appropriate for this forum.

You will find that this forum is frequented by trade and DIY woodworkers alike but unlike some woodwork forums which are inundated by DIY answers this forum tends to have tradesmen answer the questions.

The trades people that do pop in now and again to comment have experience and knowledge that is very valuable and you should not underestimate the value of this forum by any degree.

I have over 40 years of professional experience in the woodwork industry and have valued many of the comments made by both professional and none professional woodworkers on this site. Some of the DIY woodworkers on here are very professional in there approach to the job and have some very good tips to pass on.

Don't be afraid to post your work Old Boy.

I think 90% of members are home owners who join up and ask one question and then disappear, don’t really benefit the forum at all.

That said I have nothing against home owners ,diyers or men in sheds.

I'm a Joiner and I've been watching the thread with interest, I did ask a question back on page 6 but I think it got buried under all the noise :lol:

The other thing to consider is that this forum does serve as a great library of info for anyone searching for something specific. As long as any pictures don't disappear, then the information shared on here will be around for a while yet.
So, if you are concerned about knowledge being lost and you believe you have something interesting to share, then I would encourage you to go right ahead and post it. I don't think knowledge shared is ever a waste of time. There may not be many/any replies but you should know that someone out there will find it useful - even if it's not immediately.

Anyone interested in staircase work, take a look at this and tell me, did they do a good job? They think they did.

I would have sacked them on the spot, but am I out of touch, is that’s what you get in the modern world.

I took a look last night and found it very interesting, it's a shame the laminations were so visible on the handrail.

Hi Mark
This is a different video and company, the company is quite happy to advertise the company, I would not put my name to the staircase build or instal. That would be bad enough, but to say that it’s a good job , that grates on me.

Interesting calculator ?

Yes he’s a very clever man, I did use that calculator on my practice piece, (first time use) and it did come up with the correct bevels, I didn’t check wether the other results were right, but no reason to believe they wouldn’t be right.

I still prefer drawing it out, it doesn’t take long to draw once you are used to it.

Here’s a drawing to help clarify some of the terminology used in tangent handrail drawing.

In the case of a single twist wreath the position of “seat” “height” and “pitch” is in a slightly different position. If anyone is interested lol.

Hi everyone views on this thread are still going up so there is plenty of interest.
Has anyone got a comment good or bad, if your a professional tangent handrail specialist I would welcome your input good or bad, I don’t pretend I know it all.

Anyone done a drawing they can post or a drawing and model, if not give it a try why there is help available.

Would you like me to share a drawing for a different stair stretch out or plan layout.
I will warn you though, it is addictive once you get into it.
