Prepare the first blades

Blank laying (without glue) of the first row of blades

Blank laying (without glue) of the first row of blades

1. Perform the blank (glue-free) placement of the first two rows of slides. Place expansion wedges against the wall and lay the first blade, groove against the wall. Place the floor in the direction of the length of the room to lengthen it or conversely in the direction of the width to reduce the effect of length.

2. At the end of the row, you will probably have to re-cut a blade. Take the measurement between the end of the blade and the expansion wedge.

3. Mark the measurement on the back of the cutting blade (take into account the orientation of the tongue and the groove), draw the line of cut using the square. Flip the blade upside down and saw with a jigsaw. Assemble the second line of blades blank. Drop them off by marking their order: mark them on the underside of a number for the line and a letter for the order on the line, from right to left, for example.
