Laminate floor installation problems.

Just put down a Laminate floor and I'm running into a couple of problems. Actually, the problem is more with the T-Moulding. First, the bottom of the t-mold doesn't reach the concrete slab for glue down. Also, the laminate is a little higher than the tile. Any recommendations on what I can do to to secure the t-mold in place? Also, there is an area where I didn't leave enough space between the tile and Laminate for the t-mold to fit. How can I trim the laminate after it is already down? Is there a particular saw someone can recommend? I figure I can use a circular saw but didn't know if there were more options out there...maybe something with a little more control. It's a 12mm laminate and was tough to cut with a circular saw when I started the project. Ended up using a table saw which worked out nice. Thanks for any input or help.

I just laid engineered wood and used my dremel multimax to make some adjustments after it was down.

One of those Sonic Crafter type tools will work for "up-to-other-objects" type flush-cuts. Trouble with that is this cut then becomes a $125 cut.
