Furthermore, what is the best saw for cutting laminate flooring?
A jigsaw is a real all-rounder when it comes to cutting laminate floors. It's best used to cut out shapes from your board. For example, when you want to place boards around your toilet or maybe a pillar. Always use a fine toothed blade and have the saw blade spinning before you touch the board.
Beside above, do I need a special blade to cut laminate? The best circular saw blade for cutting through laminate for a kitchen counter is one with many fine teeth -- at least 40. Blades with carbide tips tend to last longer than regular steel. In addition, you should choose a narrow blade, or one with thin kerf, as it's called in saw talk.
One may also ask, can I use a circular saw to cut laminate flooring?
A Circular Saw: ?You can also use a circular saw but it will require additional tools like a square and some type of work surface to cut the laminate flooring on. Sawhorses and a piece of plywood would make a pretty ideal workbench for this task and would be the easiest and most convenient method, in my opinion.
