What tools do you use to cut already laid hardwood flooring

Hi Folks,

I need to cut through 3/4 inch oak flooring which has already been laid to make some repairs. What are the tools you use to make these cuts? I have a wormdrive Skil saw which I trust to do just fine on the big cuts. But I'm not sure how to handle the more precision cuts that the saw won't be able to reach.

I've seen some video of people using a multitool? Any suggestions are sincerely appreciated.

Mutlitool was my first thought. Fein makes pretty much the top of the line one, the MultiMaster, but a lot of people say the Harbor Freight one is a pretty good alternative at a much lower price.

I have 2, of the Rockwell Multi masters and love them.
Going to need to make two cuts down the middle about 3/4" apart, the oscillating saw will make the short end cuts and finish out where the ciruler saw can not cut to the 2, ends.
I stand on a short piece of 2 X 4 to act as a guide when making the plunge cuts.
