Tis cheap! Also Amazon have priced matched these it seems
I "SAW" this in the catalogue the other day, sadly my wife would be disappointed with only 20"
Is this the kind of fine finish cut I'd need for laminate flooring?

For a reason, don't be fooled into thinking that Stanley makes quality tools. I'm sure they are perfectly good but they are in no way related to the British tools that your grandad had. Stanley is simply an old name being re-used by a company that imports cheap tools and puts the name on them to fool people who don't know into thinking they are buying a quality product. The saw will be no better than a DIY store own brand item. If you are looking for quality go for a quality product like an Irwin JackSaw.

Given that any cuts should be covered by your skirting or scotia (depending on how you're doing it) I would say fine for laminate - but you're going to be bloody tired by the time you hand cut an entire rooms worth oO.

I used a laminate guillotine for the last room I did - does a quick, easy, accurate but low quality job but all of the cuts were hidden.
I got a couple of Stanley saws in the past when Amazon had them on offer - very disappointed, the handles weren't comfortable to hold for a start. I prefer my Irwin or even my cheap Draper ones.
these are terrible saws

its fine for laminate flooring. after all the cut ends with either be hidden under the skirting or beading.

*edit* just used my trusty 2yo one, for installing a largish room by hand as i needed to keep dust to a minimum. for the price, they do the job

Stanley are actually a huge tool mamufacturer. Stanley black and decker is the parent company of quality tool brands such as MAC tools, Dewalt, Facom and Britool. The issue quality is the same as all tools, each manufacturer has a professional, DIY and basic range. This is probably just their basic range. For the price you can just bin it once its done the job
Has anyone any experience with the Irwin 880 plus universal saw that is coated with PTFE?
Try sawing straight with one of these cheap Stanley saws. They are rubbish. To test a good saw you need to flex it. If you can bend it through nearly 90 degrees from centre don't buy it. Another test is hold it in one hand and wiggle it from side to side (am being serious lol) if it doesn't move much then buy it. If its cheap chances are there will be lots of flex and movement and you shouldn't buy it. I bought one of these cheap Stanley ones a few years ago from B & Q. Used it once and took it back. It was all over the place and looked like I had cut the timber with the wrong hand. Stanley like most other manufacturers are using cheap materials or tools purchased from other companies with their name on it in order to be competitive with cheap offerings from Rolson and other companies. By cheap and buy it twice or more than twice.
These saws are garbage. The teeth don't have a wide enough set so they jam and bend!

​think that would be down to how you cut it lol maybe abit of practice is in order. I have used these saws before and they cut just fine, all saws when new bite a lot and require abit more concentration to start off with to get the cut square and plumb.

I'm not sure if it is coated, but my Irwin 880 plus says it's 25% faster than the previous model (so I guess that's yes to coated). And the Irwin is my favourite.

Do you not think I know how to use a saw and how to cut straight. Some of the cheap saws are **** because of the poor and thin steel they use. You get what you pay for and comparing some of these to one I have had since I was an apprentice more than 30 years ago proves it.
