Vinyl Floor over Concrete

Dremel Multi-Max with a rigid scraper blade did the job for me.

I was able to remove the vinyl flooring from a 10x9 bathroom floor that had been down since 1983. I had tried various manual scrapers but I did not have the endurance and it didn't look like I would ever get the job done.

I was going to put tile down on top of the vinyl becuase I had no other choice. So, if other folks can't get their vinyl up try a Dreml Multi-Max or your favorite oscillating tool.

thanks for the tip Ken.

seems like the Multi Max, Feins and others have uses all over the place.
