Is this a genuine attempt at fitting a bullnose?
that looks awful a bullnose should always be done in 2 pieces to stop it going baggy.
what a mess
If your finishing the side like that then the full step should really be Cap nd Band. It looks crap if mixed and matched like this video. Also that’s a ton of staples someone else needs to remove. I personally nowadays use spray on cap nd bands as it reduces staple, pin marks on shoddy, cheap UK carpets with very little pile per square inch.
Not gonna say anything but thanks for sharing.
Old way that looks dreadful
great vid,good camera angle just what i was looking for,gonna try this myself now,wish me luck.
Cap and band. This looks sloppy and will go baggy. Put the tread on tuck and tack. Then the band and tuck the top of that too. Staple gun hahah. I watched my dad a master fitter for years growing up on the job with him. Proper craftsman and very skilled and although i cant hold a candle to the quality of his work i can recognise a cockney cowboy when i see one and dodgy work too and its in this video matey!! Also agree on the use of smoothedge on the bottom.
That is not how u do it. That’s an old way of doing it,should be stitched.if ur using the gun staple under all of the nosing,much neater and tighter.snd if ur gonna staple the band at least do it between the pile.shoddy
That was the 1st way to fit a Bullnose i was shown 25 yrs back ;), only difference was no electric gun
Great helpful vid. Thanks. made my bottom step look great.
This carpet looks very floppy, could you do it this way with a stiffer carpet?
that’s a mess
either cap and band it or hand sew. no in between.. :'(
Now I know why it takes me 2 hours to take out all the staples ……
Just awful, staple gun on carpets is just an easy way out. He has half an idea how to do it, but all he needs is like 8 nails and some spray glue, I agree with fitting the bottom step in one piece, its way tastier then two separate pieces, putting gripper around a nose is a no no for me, might make a video just to show how we do it in Ireland!
why do you stick a piece behind the riser? just staple it to the wood so it looks flush and you should fold the edge would make it look much cleaner
Fuckkkkkkin hell you messed it up
What a fookin mess!
