    Ahh yes. I love those spirals. Putting the right helix in top caps is somewhat of an art. It's easier if you can bend it onsite, and lay it right on the stairs or risers for a template. You could also prefab all of your posts and install them, then use the post tops as your template. We use solid flatbar for a top cap and an Eagle bender and forks to get all of the precise bends in the radius. We also use a Hossfeld and any homemade jigs we may need. Each one has it's own issues and when it's done, pat yourself on the back and enjoy.

    Default Our spiral staircase handrail bender

    This is a short video of us starting to bend a spiral handrail. Stair diameter and rise is set up first. Once the tubing is completly through, the railing will fit perfectly
