I'd strongly recommend you beg/borrow/rent a power miter saw (aka a chop saw). You can get an acceptable quality of cut with either a circular saw or a jigsaw, using the right blade. But you'll spend 4 times as long ensuring your cut is lined up and square, as compared to using a miter saw. If you do use the jigsaw or circular saw, use a fine or plywood blade. If you use a circular saw, make yourself a cutting jig. Use a 2'x2' piece of MDF or plywood to make a table top. Attach two strips of plywood across the table top, slightly wider than your flooring planks, creating a trough for the plank to sit in. About 5 in from one end, attach additional scraps of plywood on either side of the trough to create a deck to run the saw across. Finally, attach another strip of plywood across the trough to create a cutting guide for the saw. It's important that this guide be square to the trough - use a framing square if you have one to align the guide -- if you don't have a square, the factory corner on a sheet of plywood will be pretty close to square. This jig will allow you to accurate cuts fairly quickly using your circular saw. A circular saw blade spins such that the teeth are cutting up from the bottom of the board, which can leave a ragged, chipped edge when cutting laminate. If you find your laminate is chipping a lot, cut the boards face down. For cutouts around corners, doorways, etc, the jigsaw will be your best tool. Finally, have spare blades on hand. Laminate flooring (as well as most pre-finished wood floorings) have aluminum oxide in the top coat for wear resistance. Aluminum oxide is a tough abrasive that will quickly dull a saw blade.

Q:75 gallon tank in 2nd floor apt.?
I am not sure. But I just wanted to add a little tidbit of info...your stand's legs are very important here. If they are narrow, then that will be a lot of pressure on four small points. If they are wide, that is much better. If your stand doesn't have legs, but just has one flat surface for the whole bottom, that is ideal. The pressure would be spread out and minimized.
Q:Why does the floor produce seams?
Two points: ① floor itself, the original moisture content is relatively high. Flooring to the ground after the floor, it has changed the volatile water, causing the floor of the horizontal shrinkage from the seam, that is, the material itself with the problem of Tam Tam Tou read the tea over the water consumption is relatively large. ② When the manual installation, due to the installation of the staff on the floor moisture content do not understand. Then the installation process between the floor and the floor, he may be installed more loose, it will also increase the severity of the seam. Note: ① must first keep the ground dry ② two or three days ahead of the house inside the first contact with the air, the best water can be consistent with the floor. ③ because the floor in the installation process, be sure to install the partition, give it a certain amount of contraction space. In the installation of the time must have moisture-proof pad, moisture pad has two roles. One is the buffer between the floor and the keel is not hard to hit the Well Well, this way there is damage to the floor. The second words play a tidal effect, the floor as long as the attention of these few, I think the deformation coefficient is relatively small. Acceptance time is very important: the provisions of the seam can not be greater than 0.8 mm!
Q:What do think about cork flooring?
Newer cork flooring is much higher density than the old stuff. Still it does scratch and tear so I would not use it if you are hard on floors. I would not recommend for bathrooms. It is water resistant but not waterproof. I like cork floors for the looks and acoustic properties. I would not use it in my home but that is because with the boys and two dogs it would not be practical. I owned a janitorial service for many years. In the 1970's several clients had cork floors. There were not many companies that knew how to maintain them. In one office building the floor had been installed in 1948 and was still good. Newer cork is compressed to make it harder and more wear resistant and is usually finished with polymers or urethanes for for water resistance, wear and maintainability.
