I received this last night and I am very happy. Other reviews spoke of quality control issues, but I found that the one I received was in perfect condition. Others complained of no instructions, I also received instructions, again no issues. I used it last night for the first time and a very excited about the ease of use and quality of the product.

Highly recommended to anybody installing stairs, or shelving as well.

I put in hardwood flooring and stairs and this was by far the best tool for cost saving. Considering stair treads cost about $30 each, a couple bad fits and you lose a lot. My stairs measured exactly the same across the front of the tread as the back. I cut 1 board and found out they were not square, but off by 1/4". With this tool you get an exact pattern of the existing step for cutting the new tread and they look great!

This is an absolute great tool!

We put new hardwood treads and risers on our 40 year old stairs. There wasn't a 90 degree angle to be found on this case.

This jig makes cutting the correct angles and heights a very easy job. Took 8.5 hours to complete 14 stairs as well as putting the hardwood on a 3' x 3' landing.

The staircase looks beautiful. Totally impressed with this tool.

Bloody amazing, best one I have come across on the market. The others have a price too high for their design, was going to make a better one myself till I found the stair wizard which was cheaper than my time. Now I have the stair wizard I fitted a tread in 1/3 of the time.

Also I was happy it came in a protective reusable tube

I ordered the wheaton Tools PL200 Stair Wizard and expected to get an inexpensive tool that would do the job for me. After just a few days I received what I can oly describe as a high quality "upgraded" tool than what I expected. In fact I thought that they sent me the wrong tool. But, alas, it was the right tool. Very pleasently surprised with the quality and the quick receipt of the tool.

If you do trim work for a living, you can't afford not to have one of these. I have installed stair treads with and without this guide and I will never do one without it again. It will pay for itself on the first job in saved time.
I have never seen a perfectly square inside to inside stairwell, and this guide will let you cut perfect treads every time.
Well made, and 5 stars rating.

This was my first time cutting stair treads, and this worked well for the task. The first couple treads didn't look good but after a little experience I had them looking great and tight to the edges.

I found it hard to fold the tool back together and I don't think the tool is strong enough to take much abuse, not that it necessarily should be designed to be.

Beautifully crafted, a pleasure to work with. Time saving tool that's accurate, and easily speeds up the process. A pleasure to work with. I'm a professional not a DIYer. This is the go to tools for cutting treads. Oak & maple treads are too expensive to screw up and labor is costly if you have to screw around doing trial and error templates. Just buy it!

I recieved the stair wizard today and i must say it is one great addition to my long list of tools i can not do without. It is made with every attention to detail and the craftsmanship,and is second to none. A very fine looking and not to mention a tool that does it's job that it was designed for, highly recommend if you do a lot of hand built stairs.

the tool could be made out of a lot better material, such as aluminum base and slide. When I tightened down the thumb screw it would draw up the inside board and stick it in the groove which made it hard to slide again until you pushed hard to push it back down into into the groove. It could also be a little stronger so it doesnt flex so much.
