Do you mean this plank is in the middle of your floor layout?? This plank is in the last row of boards in the middle??

It happened in the first row,up against the wall, in the middle,

---------- { the wall}

{1} is the one against the wall. Hope my design shows up right. I need to cut some length off.

probably a dremel or something would work.

I agree with Floorcraft that a dremel may cut the laminate. A dove-tail saw is under $10, and would also do the job. The saw is a flat 2-sided sawblade about 10 inches long with an offset handle. It can be used for trimming jambs as well. Heck, I have even used it to cut a toilet off the floor that was glued down with silicone. Works well when you need to flush cut items with minimal clearance space. Look for it in the hand-tool section of your home improvement or hardware store.
