They always rolled the product before delivering it to us. A few moments rolled out in sun would flatten the product.
One thing be very careful handling any kickback where the laminate edge can slide on your hand will lay it open. Very hard to heal if wound gets loaded with laminate dust.
One has to wonder how long the formica was rolled up in the box before I got it. Days? Weeks? Months? A year? And where was it stored, a hot location or worse where the sun could shine on it?
I have my J-roller out and am thinking the curl will roll out into the glue and be fine. If not and I wreck it well then I will have to rethink the project.
I've cut up sheets with a circular saw and the edges were so so but that was OK since the material was over sized and I would be trimming them to size with a router. I couldn't do that on this project so I was a little worried about how the cuts would turn out but the blade did a near perfect job, in fact as good as I have gotten with a router.
