question on arraying a revolved boss/base feature

Hello again all,

I'm trying to model my deck railing for my house as practice in SW and I'm in a bind as to how to "linear array" / "copy" the revolved boss/base feature I made for the spindle.  My railing has square extrusions at the ends but the middle has a revolved look so I broke up the spindle into 3 extrusions, the square ends being simple extrudes and the middle being a revolved base.  Not sure how to transition the two extrusion types but that is aside from my main question which is how to array these spindles 5" c/c in 13 places.  I can get the one to the revolve feature (as shown) but when I try to use linear pattern and choose the extrusion under the box for "features to pattern" I have no option to enter the area for the spacings or distance.  Please see my .sldprt and maybe offer some suggestions.  Any help is appreciated!

P.S.  The first spindle is set at 4 1/4" in from each end.
