got called out to a stair rehab job. they took out the steel and put in wood. wanted me to put metal handrails (1.250 pipe) in. had some existing I could use material from. about 60' of rails all together. the inside rails need to be continuous up 4 short flights of stairs. the rest on outside as needed. I told him $1400. He said that was a bit much for less than a days work. Maybe I'm too dang slow, but I was figurin 2 full days to do them to my satisfaction. thats a lot of cuttin and mitering around them corners. been there done that.
