why not use the old tread/riser as a template?

if you're re-treading, why wouldn't you simply use the old tread as a template for the new?

Measure Angle?

Do these also take in consideration measuring off angled measurements? In other words for example back of tread 32 inch front of tread 32 1/16th inch.

5 in. x 12 in. Sturdy Plastic Tread Template is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 125.

These templates saved me a lot of time and allowed me to cut the laminate treads to fit perfectly against the wall and against the riser. These are easy to use. I used a scrap piece of floor laminate as the cross member between the templates. You simply place the template on the step and adjust the template ends so that they rest against the walls and the riser, you then use the template to mark your cut lines on your piece of laminate. Without these it would have taken me three to four times as long, and the treads would not have fit as well as they did by using the template.

However, ... it is a very good alternative to some expensive tools that essentially do the same job. However, the clamps that you use to hand tight the black nuts are way too weak. I recommend replacing them with either much thicker plastic or metal ones. One of mine cracked at first use :) But, hey, for $20 you can't beat the price and making a jig is not worth the time and materials. So, be extremely gentle when tightening the nuts.

It gave very accurately the exact width and angles. It seems nothing in my house is square and this product made life very easy in measuring everything in one go. I highly recommend it. It makes a professional out of an amatuer.

If you are putting in steps and or risers or are covering your current steps. This tool is a must for measuring your steps and risers. One just loosens the thumb screws to allow the each plastic template to rest up against the sides from front corner to back corner, then tighten the thumb screws and pull the templates out from the steps and trace onto your step or riser to cut. Cut so you have to lightly tap the step or riser into place so there are no gaps. Practice with a scrap piece of wood for your first step.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job I am not expecting to do stair treads often, so I didn't want to invest heavily in this tool. I would have liked that some sort of connecting bar was included instead of requiring a piece of 1x3 to be purchased separately. It's a bit pricy for what you get, but not too bad. I would recommend since it does the job and is a lot less expensive than other options on the market. The included instructions are poorly photocopied, it would be nice if the supplier fixed this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, quite useful! While reading on websites about installing stair treads and risers, I noticed several references to a "tread template". This was my first stair tread/riser installation - replacing the carpeted stairs with red oak. It would have been next to impossible without this tool to get the treads and risers cut correctly. NEVER assume the sides of a stairway are plumb/straight/parallel! (they are NOT.) This tool is simple to use, very inexpensive (other sites sell this for 2x or more HD's price), and gets the job done - correctly and professionally. Suggestion: don't even TRY to get your cuts correct without this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great simple tool make sure that you mark which way is toward the riser. Double check the tightness of thumb screws and back cut the tread cuts by maybe 3-4% if you have a compound miter saw. Cut just to the line, dryfit and do the final cuts. This tool makes you able to have professional results at a fraction of the fancy gauges!
