Half round trim molding


Do big box type hardware stores cut would (mitre the corners) if you ask or pay them? I have half round molding that I attempted to reuse when I have my kitchen floors replaced and I think the prying off and replacing made it a bit too shabby looking. In fact, a few edges cracked. If I could get it off and take it in would they cut it to the same dimensions. Do you paint it before nailing it down or after?

No. rough cuts only. Buy a miter box and back saw and do it yourself.

No, but a small lumberyard that does millwork may.

Before. Touch up after. Saves a lot of headaches doing it first.

I think that would be quarter-round...

That's where the "shouldn't even if would" comes in -- undoubtedly would not get a precise fit that way and you would have need to trim or fill, anyway.
As Ed says, buy an inexpensive plastic miter box and backsaw and a "4-in-1" rasp/file and you can do it yourself quite easily.
If only the ends are broken here or there, you may well be able to trim the ends off and use most of it, either the longer pieces for shorter wall sections or, depending on the room and all, may just an additional joint could be made in inconspicuous locations and only need a small amount of new material...

Borrow a powered miter/chop saw. I tried the namd miter and rasp routine and it gave ok results, but not great. With the power miter saw you can quickly make nice straight cuts and trims. It is better to cut a little long an dthen slowly take off slivers until you have a nice tight joint. Then take a utility knife and cup out the joint slightly, being careful to not raek any cuts out of the exposed edges.
Paint before and then touchup after.
