It automatically allows for and desired tread overhang, and will accommodate stairs up to 14-inches deep and 53-inches wide.

Extensions are available.

Complete with case.

Having installed stair treads without the stair wizard I know how helpful this tool can be,it is simple to use and very accurate,no longer do you need an extra tread in case you butch one.My only problem would be that our first one had to be retured because it cracked. Overall great tool!

I wish I had gotten this tool years ago! It has been invaluable to me in my finish work - makes what can be a frustratingly imperfect task real easy - no gaps! And its beatifully made as well - a little piece of ingenious craftsmanship in its own right! If you do stairs often or occasionally, you need this tool.

This is a beautifully made tool. Takes only a few stair treads or risers to get familiar with it before you start cutting parts that fit right the first time. Good versatility. You will not be able to use this on stairs much under 30" wide which I do run into sometimes in old houses. This tool is worth the money.

Verified Purchase
The "case" as advertized is a tube made of flimsy plastic of 1.25mm thickness, with caps
at each end. It looks to me the "case" is a disposable shipping packaging rather than permanent
storage. If the tool is so elegant as many reviewers said, why doesn't it have a equally elegant case
to match it. Judging from the good reviews, and the price ($139.90), and that the case is specifically
advertized (but there was no picture), I was expecting a case of equal as or better than the
quality of the case of my $20 caliper, with which I am pretty happy.

Where would you store a tube with rolling around? And I doubt that carrying a tube to customer side
would boost your professional image. Imagine that a musician carry his flute in a plastic tube
to the concert hall! Sure, a good case will increase the cost, but given the low
material cost of the tool, which I estimate as $20 or less, as it is just a few pieces of wood and
some plastic and metal parts, there are plenty of room for the case. I for one will pay for the
design and workmanship, and casing is part of it. "Including case" is one of the reason I decided
to buy the product.

So much for the casing. Now the two adjustable stops that you can set for the depth of "nose" that
overhangs the riser. As one review well said, "It's important to make sure that both of these stops
are set EXACTLY the same distance from the butting edge of the tool or it will throw your cut lines
off significantly". But how do you make sure the same distance? Yes you can measure it with another
tool such as a caliper, but if this tool is well thought of as many reviewers claimed, why there
are no measurement markings on the set of stops themselves?

this tool is great the sliding dovetail arms are a little sticky but some wax fixes that. I have never done a stair case this fast and tight it is like i was cheating! i advise anyone who builds stairs to buy this tool it will pay for its self in the first 5 steps you do on a stair case. i have made other tools or jigs similar to this but this is by far the best and can be used for other things than stairs like wall to wall closet shelves .

Mr. Wheaton resolved the dilemma with my tool by sending me a replacement part. The part arrived in working order and Mr. Wheaton was understanding about the issue with the tool. It took a little time for each of us to make contact but when this happened Mr. Wheaton took care of the problem. Thanks Mr. Wheaton for the service Respectfully Charlie Newman, Louisville Ky
