Lmao. Its actually a high school!
And in response to another comment – the insert idea was among the first… For some reason they aren’t keen on that one either. Knowing this client, its likely because they have already installed it…

I suggest that you consider on-site research to
determine the typical mounting conditions for brass poles. Although typically
in a vertical mount configuration, they tend to see fairly significant lateral
loads (typically from centripetal accelerations) and could reasonably be seen
as being subject to common levels for in-service loading conditions for most
railings. Note that most places with this type of installation have a
cover charge and a two drink minimum, and just remember to get most of your
petty cash advance in ones; it will save time having to get change at the bar.
I’m trying to provide some calculations for brass railing and posts. However, I’m having a difficult time locating mechanical properties (which are standard for this kind of application) of the material. Working with the most conservative numbers in the ASTM we find that not even a solid pipe works… the manufacturer prefers to use actual brass as well, as apposed to plated or faux. Does anyone know a good reference? Or even plain out what the standard grade and properties are for this application?
