    I'm curious why you didn't put pad over the nose of the step. Carpet wears pretty bad in that area as it is. Pad will reduce the wear. I also added duct tape to my bullnoses to help prevent the friction of the harsh carpet backing from damaging the pad. The tape will also secure the pad smoothly over the bullnose and let you staple or glue the carpet under the bullnose.

    Ok well the pad I use on the nose is a felt tape. It wasn't on the ones yer seein. If I had some with me I would show ya. I think felt works better on the nose.

    Why not just use felt pad on the whole step? We always upgrade the pad on steps because of the hard traffic down the middle. Looks good, CP :) Is that the pnuematic tacker stapler in the pic? How do you like it?

    Well what a surprise, no pics made it again......that's it. This phone is goin fer a swim sometime tomorrow. Anyhoo, the felt tape is something I found at Boeings Surplus store years ago. It has 2" of felt on one side of some super sticky 6" foil tape. Don't know what Boeing used it for, but it has a million uses fer me. I bought a pallet of it about 15 yrs ago and still have at least 3/4 left.........:cool:

    How come you get all the fun stuff?

    They use that tape to hold the engines onto the wings ...a noise and vibration dampener. :cool:

    15 years and it's still sticky? Wow, that's some good schtick.

    Pop said, he would install the stair pad Short! :eek: on purpose ! :eek: if the customer was too annoying :eek: :D :eek:

    To me, Cp's pad install is just barely covering, enough of the nose, to protect the carpet. Waist not Want not ;)

    Jim, that takless and stair pad installation is a work of Art ! :yesss:

    Looks like it's cut flush with the top edge of the nose. There's no picture of the finished pad, but if he adds the felt to the same point, to cover only the front edge of the nose, then the most susceptible part of the carpet to damage will be hitting that edge that the foam and the felt meet. It wouldn't take long before the carpet is being beaten into the bare wood. But again, we don't know if the foam gets trimmed back so the felt actually wraps the nose to protect that corner.

    Thanks. The first one, right? The second one got walked on too much before the carpet went in. The first one though... that had to be realll purtty from start to finish because the owner was an artist with wood. He turned raw lumber into furniture, cabinets, clocks, doors - and those stair railings made from 3 different kinds of exotic wood. I was in awe. Oh yeah, my first job for him was that rubber floor in his shop.

    ya guys are startin to push my buttons....
    ok didnt get the new phone yet so still no pics. The foil felt tape overlaps the pad right at the nose. And the felt is about 1/4" thick. So when I wrap it over the nose it compresses the faom pad.........
