Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can

ok i have a 4x4 on each end and a baluster right beside the 4x4s as a starting place so then i measure the space i need to fill ...i understand up to that point, but when i get the spacing for each baluster from the calculator, where do i measure from and to to place the first one.

Just use the calculator I linked above. It gives you the layout with the center (or far or near side) measurement for each baluster. Measuring this way is a better way to lay them out rather than trying to figure out the spacing.

The best (and I believe default) option for this calculator is far side. So you start your measuring with the edge of the post then the next dimension is the far side of the first baluster.

The edge at the start of the run. So if you're working left to right it would be the right edge of the post. Left edge if you're working right to left.

I just realized I can't link you to the results so I try it 2 ways first the entry parameters if that doesn't work for you then I guess I'll have to list the measurements for each one. Here is the link again http://www.blocklayer.com/CentersLevelEng.aspx

First field>Length 61 1/8" 2nd field>Member width 1 1/4"

I can put In the numbers. Im asking you how far will the first baluster be from the starting point which is the right edge of the baluster that meets the post.

i got it thanks, ***** ***** on how i could figure the angle for my handrails, i see this calculator will do it, but i dont know the degree angle i have.

If that doesn't work for you there are many others online just google "calculate angles in right triangle". To get the info you need you'll at least need a framing square. You put one leg of the square against the post at the bottom of your rail then read the dimensions on the triangle where the railing intersects each leg of the square.
