    Question cutting baseboard while in place

    In putting new kitchen cabinets in, I need to cut the baseboard so the cabinet will set flush against the wall. Is there a saw(?) which will allow me to cut the baseboard in place? I don't want to resort to using a hammer and chisel. Sometime back I remember seeing on a TV commercial for a saw that had a triangular cutter and I think was capable of performing the cut I am trying to accomplish. I have not been able to locate it in any of my local home improvement centers. Any suggestions?

    The tool you mentioned seeing is a Fein Multimaster. Dremel is coming out with a lighter and cheaper version called the MultiMax due out in October.

    If you have the dough...I second, third and forth Fein's Multi Master but be sure to be prepared to shell out bucks for the blades and be seriously careful not to hit nails or bye bye blade. You can get some deals on blades through Ebay and some carps even make their own blades.
    You won't be sorry you bought one!!!

I take the abrasive blade off and replace it with a small saw blade for tight, flush cutting.

    Hope this is helpful
