One of the absolute necessities of a neat professional finish when installing a solid wood, engineered or laminate floor is the ability to cut into door frames and architraves so the flooring can be neatly slid under. This is by far the best way to finish a floor at any doorway. But what tool can be used to accomplish this? Well, let’s take a look…
If you’re a novice installer and don’t want or need to break the bank by paying £240 for a professional power undercutter
and are just taking on a singular installation of a wood floor, then you shouldn’t have to pay any more than £15!!!
This is the best purpose made hand held tool I’ve ever seen and I can tell you exactly why. Knuckles!! Yes, you read that right. When I started out in the wood floor installation game I wish I’d have had something like this. I used to use a basic panel saw to cut into all my customers door frames. Well, my knuckles got a right beating and to this day they’re scarred. When you push and pull a panel saw as you’re cutting into the frame, inevitably your knuckles will catch the floorboards, tearing away the skin! Painful stuff!!
Take a look at this hand held purpose made saw. You can clearly see the black ball holder on top of the saw. This is simply excellent!! No cut knuckles, easy holding position and not one awkward stroke. Full stability when in motion.
This saw also has cutting teeth on each sides, making the hand held jam saw ideal for anyone that is left handed or has hard to get at places to cut.
What a great little tool, if you’d like to grab one simply click here!!
Alternatively, if you’ve got a decent amount of door frames to cut and would like something a little more substantial but again don’t want to break the bank, take a look at this little bad boy…© Copyright 2013 Wes, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fitmywoodfloor
