Loose Newel post


I have a Newel post that is basically identical to the post shown in the photos sent by Zarack on June 28th, 2008. My post and the five posts that surround the large post in a circle are all loose at the bottom. If I move the circular rail and center post by the top I can see that the main post and all five posts are very slightly loose. I can see that the small square posts have been attched with one counter sunk finishing nail each. The larger round center post is apparently attached with three counter sunk finishing nails. They are all anchored to the extention of the first stair step just as in the picture. I might be able to pry the assembly up and get epoxy under the posts. But I can see no way to remove the finishing nails without a lot of cosmetic damage. Any help would be appreciated.

Bob, the search won't go back but a year so we don't know what Zarack's picture looks like, you might try to post a picture so we can see how to help you.
