Have a situation where the call for "the pull" when laying out a set of stairs. Any ya'all have an idea what that is.

Hi Slimshavings

I can't find any reference to 'the pull'...perhaps it's the US equivalent of what us Brits call the 'going'?

Hi Rodger
I'm familiar with the going. And after looking through all my stair books and not finding and metnion of it. I think it was a local thing and it has to do with the distance on the diagonal from nosing to nosing. Or in other words as one would be walking up and pulling on the railing from stair to stair. i've laid it out there on another forum and will let you know if I find out for sure.
