See how to remove damaged wooden flooring using a Dremel rotary tool.

Cutting out old flooring in tight spaces can be difficult but not with a Dremel rotary tool. To accomplish this we use a Dremel 400 series XPR, the right angle attachments, and a #543 cutting wheel, a Dremel 300, 200, or 100 series or 10.8 Volt Lithium Ion tool can also be used for this project. First mark the area you wish to cut then attach the right angle attachment and in this case a #543 cutting wheel. With the tool running at full speed make your cut as outlined. The diameter of the cutting wheel will allow you to make up to a half-inch deep cut. Because this is a free hand cut if you wish to set a shorter depth a spare piece of wood the thickness of the depth you wish to make can be used as a guide. Dust the area clean then pry up with a putty knife, chisel, screwdriver or pry bar.

Here's some extra thoughts on removing damaged flooring. Try not to hit old nails with your cutting wheel as this may damage the wheel. Let the cutting wheel do the work. This will help maintain a steady hold on the tool. For deeper cuts if you can, use an EZ544.
