Hi all. Am new here! Just want to know the best way to cut highly shiny, laminate covered kickboards. I have a jigsaw but I have a feeling it'll splinter/crack the laminate coating. I've heard there's a special type of jigsaw blade to use but I don't know the name of it. Any ideas
The jigsaw blade you refer to is a down cutting blade i.e. it cuts on the down stroke not the up stroke. Cover the sole plate of the jigsaw with adhesive tape to prevent scratching the shiny surface or cut from the back using a fine toothed conventional blade.
