I did. It holds the bracket in place.

Re: Impossible? staircase remodel


my bad, there are bolts for the rails. How would removing the rail help?

Re: Impossible? staircase remodel


We were referring to the screw infront of the spindle, not the one in the spindle. Does it not screw into the tread? If that isn't it, something else is holding the treads in place.

Re: Impossible? staircase remodel


Treads are positioned as you show. That screw is holding the bracket that the tread sits in.
The treads are held in place by the stringers(?) I explained the process a few messages back. Many thanks for all the help. It cannot be done without disassembling and I am not up for that.
