    These aren’t what I like to do usually, but they need to be wrapped up by Christmas.
    One is a vinyl plank job with cuts EVERYWHERE.
    And the other is a laminate job that I got started for some other crew members to finish.

    Looks good, I guess you gotta do whatever pays the bills sometimes.

    True, true.
    These weren’t even mine to begin with…the vinyl plank was another team members job but then he fell ill, and the laminate was ANOTHER team members job that they needed help to get started.
    I ended up putting down a couple hundred square feet for them ! 😀
    Hope they’re happy when they go there tomorrow to finish it.

    Will you get it done by Christmas? I would bet lots of folks are looking for their projects to be done by Christmas. Here’s to no surprises in getting it all done.

    Well, I guess things like that happen. Good for you for stepping up and keeping things moving forward!

    I didn’t mind it that much actually. Easy to work with… Just score it and snap it. The subfloor has to be very flat for it to lock together tightly. I floated it out on Saturday with some floor patching compound.

    Nice job stepping in for someone, That’s quite the bathroom with a corner tub and what looks to be a shower. It looks huge, I would assume that’s a jetted tub?

    Like the Vinyl plank. It’s very durable and easy to clean.

    Looks nice. have you gone to the Pergo blade for the laminate floors or are you using something else to cut it with.

    He said he was simply scoring and snapping the tiles. My assumption is that he is using a utility knife and a straight edge. The last install I did with vinyl plank ( looked like wood floor) is was able to score and and snap with great results.

    I was doing the score and snap with the vinyl plank like @jponto07 posted, and for the laminate I was just using the Bullet shear. Nice to just keep the cutting a few feet away from you.

    I have a bullet shear also. It is nice to keep the dust down when installing. A lot less noise also.

    And fast too!
    At the end of a run I’ll just flip my plank, scribe a small mark on it, and then shear it, install it, and take my offcut to the other end to start my next run.

    I have seen the shears before and wondered if they worked well. Do they leave a jagged edge?
