I've removed all the ceramic tiles with a chisel and I'm left with a layer of screwed down ply, mostly covered in cement - fitted by myself many years ago. The ply underneath seems to be in 3 main sections and there's a lot o f screws holding it in place.
After a days toil today, I have managed to almost complete the removal of o ne of the ply panels, which meant locating screws, cleaning the screw head and unscrewing. Every time, I think I've done and try to lever up the ply p anel, there's something stopping it coming up, and I keep locating further hidden screws that need to be removed :(
Seems that as long as there's one more hidden screw remaining, the ply won' t budge, so I've now decided to get a saw and cut the plywood into smaller squares while still screwed down. I'll then remove a small square of ply at a time.
Can anyone recommend a saw tool, that will allow me to cut to a 12mm depth into the ply without cutting into the T&G floorboards below? Hopefully, I c an then remove the ply-board a small piece at a time.
I have a multi-saw that cuts well with the oscillating saw disk, but it has no depth setting, so is really no good for this job.
