cutting door trim


My neighbor is laying wood flooring and needs to cut the door trim so the flooring will slide under it. What is the type of saw he needs to accomplish this? I know what it looks like (the guy who laid our tile used it), but I do not know the name of the saw so he can go buy one.

Japanese Saw. Very flexible AND very sharp. Be sure to protect surrounding floor if necessary.

you can also rent a "Jam Saw" from home depot to do the same thing, but if you only have one to do then Japanese saw is a good idea.

cheers

You can use any cross-cut saw if it's just for one project. I own a Jamb saw, but I need it for almost every floor installation.

I just did this last night. I bought a flush / jamb saw for about 12 bucks at home depot. I did about 5 doors in 1 hour, best 12 bucks I spent. It's not eletric so there is a little elbow grease involved, but won't kill you.
