I have been searching the internet for some help here I know there are lots of youtube help but non seem to tackle my quest.
I'm laying float type engineered laminated Hickory flooring ( i believe 3/8"
over my very old 5.5 " t&g flooring in my upstairs hall ( 2nd floor ) old farm house. 1890 cir.
The old floor is still really level accept for two spots I plan on sanding these.
Here's my problem I want to cut the old bull nose from the flooring tread leading to the first step lay a new ( stair nosing ) oak lapping over the cut off bull nose, Then is it looks bad I can round the bottom edge to look all rounded ,if needed add an additional support under the lip for strength.
Now the hard part where the new laminated floor abuts the oak nosing
What kind of fit is used here. Butt, or a grooved fit ? I need the same evenness. for safety.
Now I'm using terms I've picked up on this forum.
Do they sell this type of " nosing thread "? or is this something I have to manufacture at home?
Thanks Deck Hand
