    Comments about Stair Tread Gauge and Shelf Layout Tool :

    I was struggling to replace carpeted stairs with retrofit hardwood treads and risers. Both had to fit perfectly between visible stringers that had been faced with quarter inch plywood. Trying to measure and transfer were beyond my skills. I came across this jig by chance and even though it seemed a little expensive for what it was I was frustrated enough to risk the money. Am I ever glad that I did. I quickly started producing risers from quarter inch hardwood plywood and trimming retro treads to width. I added a strip of 1/64 inch plywood to the jig to get a perfectly snug fit. I could wish for the availability for different length end pieces and different length stringers as it would make the jig useful for larger 'inside' fitting jobs. But that's hardly a complaint. An aluminum or stainless steel version would be even better, albeit much more expensive. In short, I'd recommend this jig for installing retrofit stair treads. I started out thinking it was expensive but ended up thinking that it's a bargain.
