cutting pressboard at cabinet's edge.

I was wondering if there was a tool out there that would work for cutting pressboard that goes under the cabinets. I removed the vinyl and there is a layer of pressboard that is stapled to the 3/4" subflooring. I have been using a chistle, but it creates a rough edge and I was looking for some sort of saw that would fit under the 3-4" cabinet overhang to the floor.

Thanks,
Jeff

There is a toe jam saw made specifically for this. You could probably rent one.

Jeff --

From what I have read here, using that saw can be a bit difficult. You must give its use your full attention. And since it has a tendency to kickback, a heavy pair of gloves to protect you hands from getting banged into the underside of the cabinet overhang is a good idea.
