I had a piece of laminate pull apart from a counter top. It is an
island counter that has a curved edge. I bought a laminate trimmer
today (Bosch) and realized that I will not be able to get the region
where it curves with the trimmer. How do I do this ?
Thanks in advance
What is a laminate file? Would I find one at Home Depot? I have a
bastard file and that's it for files.
I use a 10" flat bastard.
Works for me.
Others may like a mill bastard, I find them too fine.

The picture doesn't show any limitations, but I guess there are.
You go as far as possible with the trimmer and use a file for the rest
of it. VERY carefully, Brian. I use black tape on the countertop. It
resists the file a bit more than masking tape.
Hmm, if you can't get a trimmer in there, how do you get a file? OK,
reset to new answer: Get out your dremel and be very careful with it
from the countertop side. If you're really good, use your Bosch
That's my SWAG and I'm stickin' to it.

or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up
to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
Ok. Thanks everyone. The file did the trick in the areas I couldn't
get with the laminate trimmer. This was my first re-lamination job
on a counter top. I must have had the flush trim bit extended to far
because with the right light I can see where the bit tapped into the
lamination (top) that I was referencing off of. Next time I think I
will tape off the region the bearing rides on to prevent this in the
future ?. Not sure where I went wrong other than bit being extended
to far. If it were wood, I'd just sand the sucker.
