Anyone have a model J? Predates the 77 and have done research that makes me believe it predates the model E. Anyway, pretty sure it's late 1920s to mid 30s.

Many ways to slay that dragon, but in that particular case, I'd probably replace the stair stringers completely, or pack the risers out whatever is needed for a full board finish.

I've framed homes for over 20 years and we never bothered to break over a stud.

Depending on what the installer had to work with, he may have made lemonade from dog s#!t.

I used Tri-flow this time. I was having chronic problems with the mechanism not resetting for the next shot. A few drops later, good to go. Working flawlessly.

If the hips/vals are 45 degrees in plan view, the jack bevel will always be 45 degrees as well. What changes as the pitch increases is that the cheek cut also becomes pitched. It doesn't measure 45...
