I have a c. 1855 Post & Beam duplex, the building consitsts of 4 total additions. I own 1/2 of the building, 2 of the additions.

My 2 pieces are c. 1855 & 1890, 2 of the sill beams span across the center of my living room floor. I've removed the 1950's "lift" on the "newer 1/2" of the floor an am back to the 6" t&g pine boards.

I've now got to remove the other half. It has a 1930's green lenolium (sp) on top of the 6" t&g layer, on top of the 1850's origional floor.

I'm removing all the layers & trim boards, & want to put a 3/8 ply back over the origional layers before reapplication of new carpet.

anyone see any issues here?

I have a Bosh 1640vsk jam saw to "cut around" cabinets & walls added in a 1950's remodel. Is there any better tool to use?

my kitchen is the next room..."to skin" the floor layers out of.

I can supply photos if you need "the big picture"

Thank you !

If I had known I would have to type my user name each time,it would have been much shorter! There is a saw, I think its called keetsaw for cutting through underlayment in cabnet toespaces. Check with a flooring shop or wholeseler. Why are you using a jambsaw?
It makes horizontal cuts.

This saw allows you to use it like a "electric back saw" with an offset blade that hugs the wall.
