Default Best tool for flush cut ???

Anyone have suggestion for a flush cut tool ?

I need to remove a small bit of glassed in deck (plywood and glass) around my entire deck that I ripped up. Skill saw left about 3/4” or so...I have a multi tool but thought it may take me forever.

sawzall probably would move Around too much

dremel tool?

I have a Dremel saw max and it is a great tool. It will probably do the job nicely unless the deck is too thick - I believe it has a 3/4” cutting depth.

Don’t laugh, go to Harbor Freight and buy their Fein tool knock off. Put a good diamond blade in it and use it for the job and then throw it away. On sale you can get the tool for $16.00.

Half Fein tool good choice. I have one and have done lots with it, but it will take a while

my choice would be a grinder. Great tool for cutting FG

I have a Fein Multimaster which is a great tool. I also use an air grinder with a 6" diamond saw blade on it. I don't buy throwaway tools, buy once cry once and have it for life.
