@Ron: am working with the sheets you mailed me, so far they look very good.

@all out here: I got a problem getting 2 pieces of brass etched railing together. I tried soldering (but I have to admit my cheap-ass soldering pen only has a large pen so that might be the issue) and tried using cyano (but that didn't worked at all).
I tried to put short pieces of the railings onto a standing post (if you understand what I mean).
Or should I overlap the railings and sand them down a little bit? I have been testing on 2 pieces of scrap, but I don't want to ruin too much of it since I have  a limitted supply.

New pictures will follow shortly.

Hi
 When i want to join stanchions make the join at stanchion post, the other end the three rails, join them just behind the post with a slight overlap, the secet of a good join is CLEAN, make sure the brass at the joint is bright and clean with fine sandpaper, then tin with flux or use solder paint.
 a few pics of the rebuild I am on over Xmas break
