Salesman?  If it's not too late, don't buy the boards!!  If you were being sold them by a salesman, you can get them cheaper elsewhere.  if you need them fitting, let the installer buy them: you will get the right materials and the right quantities that way.

Thanks very much for your replies.  I suspect it is a bit more complicated than the wood flooring salesman led me to believe....

You cannot pre cut your boards. You only know once you are laying the boards where they need to be cut and their is much more tools needed than just one saw. If you buy real parquet flooring get someone who knows what he is doing and got the tools for it. Don't forget your underboards, soundproof sheets, sanding the parquet if you use real wood before sealant and clean well before applying also leave a bit of space to the walls to let the wood expand and most of all make sure you join the boards proper otherwise it all opens up later. good luck with it

You should first ask at your CE (if you have one at your company). Sometimes they have tools for loan.
