Handrails

Hi Folks - Has anybody got some good ideas about fixing 3/8 OD brass handrails into the brass knobs? I have thought of drilling and tapping for 6 or 8 BA grubscrews on the underside of the knob where they wouldn't show too much, but thought someone else might have a few gems to share? Anyway, a happy New Year to you all.

a happy New Year to you all.

Royston, another option would be to drill one stanchion all the way through and taper ream it to fit a brass taper pin, the ends of the pin could then be carefully cleaned off flush. You only need to do one on each run of handrail, likewise, with the screw method.
