Default Advise on painting stairway spindles...

any advise on painting stair well spindles? the top rail will remain staind, just painting spindles... i work with designers and do lots of painting, have an airless.., but never encountered spindles. im not sure if they can be taken out-- oh yea the spindles are all turned with a medium amount of detail. this is a repaint so i would be afraid of spraying inside.. thanks...

I like to tape where it hits the stair tread or carpet then roll with a hotdog and have a guy on both sides to catch each others hollidays or runs. It goes pretty fast once you get going. MOPAINT

hi. i'm assuming there's no carpet. if the staircase has a balustrade you're going to need a long handled bent brush (2 inch) to get between the apron and outer string; ab 1 and a half inch, and i always carry a lining fitch (anything over 3/4 inch) a flat fitch gets into small places and can cut into bottom of handrail very sharply if you need to. I always work with at least two brushes, sometimes three. staircases are better with one either side. but there is a system to painting them well, this comes with practise. keep notes on how you could have done it more efficiently for ron - later on

My partner would be one side and I on the other. Brush work. It worked well for us.

Works great,if you have a partner,if not, you just have to move fast and often,good exercise,and the wife says I don't get a cardio workout.

Yah, can't count the number of times facing spindles by myself and wishing "Little Sh!t" was there.
