Cutting laminate sheets doesn't have to be a difficult job. There are several tools that are widely available that will make the job much simpler. Many of these tools can also be rented to help save some strain on your wallet.
A scoring tool is designed to score along different materials, including laminate. This will create an edge that can be snapped in a clean line. The scoring tool helps prevent damage to the area outside of the snap line. When laminate sheets are installed, it can be much easier to use a scoring tool for corners and edges.
A circular saw will speed up the process of cutting laminate. The saw will create smooth cuts and will allow you to make cuts on larger sheets without much effort. A special blade is not necessary for cutting laminate sheets, but you will want to make sure the blade is sharp and clean.
A table saw can be handy if you need to cut large sheets of laminate. A table with a guide will allow you to create straight cuts of any size. If you don't own a table saw, many home improvement and hardware retailers will rent them by the hour or day.
