Cutting Trim Indoors11/3
When working in finished homes, I'm wondering if any of you are setting up to cut trim inside the house.
We do closet systems, and typically set up outside to cut trim when we're working on a finished home, but on a recent large 2nd floor install it seemed to take forever to do the moldingd. Each cut was a trip down the hall down the stairs, down the front steps out to the saw, cut, and back...
Looking for a better way. Thanks
Most of the time I want to work in the room that is getting trimmed out. I will tell them that when I bid the job out. If they insist on me working outside then they get an larger invoice, all that walking takes a lot of extra time.
Tools make a difference. Festool Chopsaw has a great vacuum pickup. Fastcap has a tent you can surround your chopsaw with. Tarps on the floor keeps dust off of it. Bringing a vacuum cleaner with a nice floor attachment helps with cleanup.
We try to take over the garage. Do the same as Leo. I can't imagine cutting something inside a finished home. Just the cleanup would be difficult, let alone the chance of damage.
