We have 27 of the posts that have a round base, 12 more with a square base. Each post is 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 7 foot long.
As far as other dimensions go, the total distance from the Fire Wall (down by the Colchester Lathe) to the end of Plastics is about 70 feet. We should keep a 5 foot aisle between the Fire Wall and the Colchester for a safety exit. Then we should keep another 5 foot aisle by the Bandsaw to separate Machine Shop and Plastics, another safety exit. These two entrances /exits will limit access to our area, no short-cuts.
Even if we used 4x8 ft sheets of plexiglass as a barrier and stood them up on end, the posts would have to be separated every 4 feet down the line. We have more than enough steel posts in house to do this. If you want these steel posts better separate them out onto a pallet and place the committee name on them before they disappear.
