Hi everyone, and thanks, in advance, for ANY help you can offer!
Long story short, the 'contractors' that installed my new windows, did NOT measure and cut down the casings to fit the width of the wall beFORE intalling.. as a result, I am left (after firing them for many bad practices) with about an inch of 'casing' jutting out from the wall.. I have tried using a jig-saw and am finding that a difficult task, especially when getting near the corners as the saw bucks and cannot lay flat.. my questions are:
1) is there a kind of 'jig' type saw on the market that has the blade jutting out from the side while the tool itself lays flat on the wall and butts up to the extruding piece?
2) is there an 'easy' way to cut this off without a) destroying the new drywall or b)removing the entire window (the window in question is 96" w x 72"h)
my hope is that there IS a saw that would fit this type of 'unique' job as the 5'w door casing and 6'w patio door casing are in similar shape.. although could probably fix those readily enough with just a simple planer.. until I arrived at the bottom where the floor is, wherein, I'd presume, use a small hand saw!
Appreciate any help I can get here.. this task is becomming quite frustrating due to the uniqueness of the problem!
