Spiral Staircase Help?

CLCCLC FloridaMember Posts: 4

Lego makes spiral staircase steps.

Part 40243:

Clearly the pieces are supposed to thread onto some sort of upright shaft.  Does anyone know what part that is?  Also, are any other parts needed aside from the steps and shaft?

Thanks!  :)

    And 2 x 2 plates with pins on the top and bottom are pretty necessary.

    You can also use the 1x1 round bricks. They work if you stack them up

    It is a good idea to look at the online instructions of any set that contains them, to see how to places the plates to keep the staircase in place.

    Or you could design your own.
    I've tried this a few years back:
    Anyway: have fun with your Lego!

    As well as @Debarg 's solution, Lego has also given us the 1x4 plate with a 1x3 tile and a stud on top, then repeat ad infinitum in a nice spiral - works well in confined spaces and still looks pretty good.
