    make it your self,
    if its being carpeted then even if it isnt totally spot on who will know.

    if you do not have a router it may take you a bit of time ,you can use a hand plane to get the basic bull nose shape the using glass paper smooth it down.

    is the riser sticking up a bit requiring a slot in the tread??

    you need to know the thickness off your treads the width and depth off the groove and the set back from the nosing

    No time really to make it, but I will if I have to, Its really not worth me getting my router etc out as Im only in there to plaster & decorate ..Not sure about a slot until I pull it off.
    Just had a word from my mate over the road( a joiner) says he might knock one up for £20 using the old un as a pattern ..Sorted. Thanks chaps :)
