    I'm installing the core Luxe LVP from LL. I use a jig saw for intricate cuts and this product is destroying my blades. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion on a different method for cutting or blades that will last longer?

    I use my table saw for as much of the cut as possible.
    LVP/LVT eats blades. That's just how it goes.

    Table saw is all you need for rips. I’ve been using an oscillating tool lately to speed up the intricate cuts without walking to a saw

    PVC blades will last longer. I just bring a garbage can in and cut over that. I try to do as little unnecessary walking back and forth as possible.

    The fewer tools I have to drag in the better. Jigsaw along side the bullettools cutter get me by. Down cut jigsaw blades is what I use.

    Speed equals heat equals failure. Maybe cut slower, obviously quantify production! Other day I ran into installer about tool prices, I said eBay I get stuff, he states right away oscillating tool blades he gets.

    But, I’d like to know how a PCD blade would do for the tablesaw, probably last forever but you’d need a bunch of teeth driving the price up.

    Diablo has a 10” and a 12” Pergo blade. Pretty spendy. I thought about trying one just because I’m curious but then I’d have to carry 2 saws or change blades when I cut base and reducers. Don’t know how they would work on LVP.

    I was told once that the less teeth the better on tablesaw blades for laminate.

    I’m not sure now about using a tablesaw and what’s getting in the air(dust) created by cutting these various products stone composite core or basically anything China uses as filler.

    Was going to say Chris I’d send you a gift card of 50$ to try the PCD as an incentive if you’d review it but can’t say putting that stuff in air is worth it. Been buying some stuff lately with prop 65? Cancer and reproductive harm warnings written all over the box. What the hell does that mean, for my vac hoses don’t touch them?

    The saw hood helps and when I actually hook up a vac or my dust collector to it it makes just that much more difference. Enough of a difference that I’m comfortable cutting base inside now.

    My suspenders come with a prop 65 warning on them.
