I am installing laminate flooring but I need to know how to undercut the metal door frame to fit the laminate underneath. Home Depot in canada does not rent out jamb saws. Please help!

Thank you!

Hi Judy,

Do you have a grinder? Or, do you know someone who has a grinder?

Good luck with your project.

Dave from 360Renos nailed it. Buy, borrow or rent an oscillating tool.

Such a handy little tool. Really is the best option. I finally bought one a few months ago and as Dave said cant understand why I took so long. Super easy to use and not that dangerous. A grinder to a novice for this situation is not recommended.
