I have come to the stage where lifting floorboards by hand saw and bolster is hard work , i have used large circular saws but found them to clumsy are small plung circular saws any good for cutting tongue and groove floor boards for lifting ???

but if its an unocupied house....Yeah and you scatter the house in saw dust which you then have to tidy up from the house cause you have walked it through everywhere ! With two Stanley passes you get no dust!
you may find a 230V one easier to get Dave...It never ocurred to me or any other sparky I know that you could de-tongue a floorboard with a stanley knife. Maybe Ill try it next time. I use a cordless circular saw but it drains a battery pretty quick, I'd prob buy a 240 one next time.
If you want a neat job where you have to cut the board across the joist, then you won't go wrong with the Bosch PMF180 E Allrounder Multi Tool. Got mine from Homebase, on offer, on a 15% day for well under £60, and not looked backOk all i am going to hold back on the plunge circular saw and try the stanley knife method as it seems alot safer when trying not to hit cables or pipes and just use my hand floor board saw when cutting across a joist
