I’m fitting turned timber spindles and handrails on an approximately 1000 Diameter winding staircase. I’ve fitted the inside spindles and nearly got the angles correct using measurements from an existing replica. However due to some height differences and cutting errors, I’m seeing lumps where the handrail passes over the spindles instead of a nice smooth curve.
Does anyone know how to calculate the angle from the outside to the inside of the inner-spindle that allows a decent handrail join?
My centring is good but I think I’ve used the wrong angle to set the outside edge of the spindle.
Thanks a million!
