Well I got some paint poured on it.

I used a new (to me) gun today. Durablock 007 hvlp, all I can say is wow! I'm an old schooler when it comes to paint (well actually when it comes to pretty much anything) and have not had much success with hvlp in the past.

This gun made it easy and used about 1/3 the amount of paint as my old gun. And there's a lot less over spray mess to clean up.


Now all that's left is come back tomorrow and load it up so I can hit the road 1st thing Monday morning.

Nice job! Is that a two person job to move that thing around?

The metal under the landing - is that going with the staircase or is that just a temp for supporting it while you weld it together?
What's your process for attaching it to the structure?

Thanks.

Yup, two people can move it with no problem. One of them will be on a fork lift, though. :laughing: With out having the specs to go by I'd guess it weighs about 450 lbs.

That piece of channel will stay with the stair.

This stair is a replacement for an existing, but very rusty, stair. The channel that goes under the landing, and the channel at the other end of the landing will get welded to the existing channel from the old stair, that goes through the masonry into the structural steel, after it's removed. I've left the grip strut planks on the landing loose, and just tacked the piece of channel that goes against the building so they can be removed for installation.

I know this explanation is screwy but I don't know how to explain it better unless I draw it, which I will if you'd like.

I'd be more than happy to but I'm not installing it. I just have to deliver it, then the property manager and his crew take it from there.

However he has said they're going to replace the stair at the opposite end of the building. So if we're lucky when I deliver the second one I can take some shots of the first one.
