Skirting board in-situ cutter

Postby Alvin Wyllie » Sun Feb 28, 2010 12:13 pm

Hallo, I want to trim off the bottom of my skirting board all the way round the room to allow a wooden floor to fit under, using a rotary type cutter in an electric drill, and what seems to me the best idea, is for an arm to sit on the top of the skirting as I move along to leave the skirting an even height. Is there such a device on the planet??? Many thanks for any suggestions!

Alvin Wyllie,
No using a cutter in an electric drill is really dangerous.
Get something like the fein multimaster but bear in mind that the blades are really expensive and you will go through quite a few once you have hit the wall and nails.
