We’ve covered laminate flooring cutters before, but we just couldn’t pass up writing about the Floor Boar. It’s one part ratchet, one part mini-saw, and instead of slicing through flooring with a sharp blade, you ratchet the handle up and down to make dual saw blade-like cutters chew through flooring.
The Floor Boar’s ratcheting dual blade action allows you to make cross cuts, angle cuts, and even rip flooring lengthwise. Plus you can stop any where in the cut, flip the reversing lever on the ratchet, and back the flooring out. This allows you to make notches and stopped cuts. To see the tool in action, make sure you check out Robert’s YouTube video link at the end of the post.
The dual hardened steel 48-tooth blades can cut though planks up to 12mm thick — even pre-padded laminate. It generates little dust, and the debris that is left is easy to clean up. Since you’re not slicing with a giant blade it just might be more finger friendly too.
With a little online shopping, you can pick up the Robert’s Floor Boar for as little as $65.
