Just to clarify, I don’t recommend the tool just yet as I have only used it once but so far I see the potential good for those who do a lot of laminate flooring.
Sorry I have not had much need to do stairs as I only have a few properties with a step or two in them and they are carpeted.
In one old mobile home I sold a few years it had one step going into the kitchen. I put scrap laminate across the riser and then covered the transition with the metal edge type strips you buy at the box stores. At the bottom of the riser where it met the other laminate flooring in the living room I just put a piece of small trip that I cut and stain out of 1x2 furring strips ripped in half. For mobile homes this is great but you might want to use 1/4 round if you are doing this in a nicer home.
