The table saw is a great tool for cutting plastic laminate ... almost. The basic sheet is so large, and sooooo limp, it's dam near impossible for a lone woodworker to make a decent cut. Adding to this disadvantage is the fact that any saw will chip the cut edge badly.
Although the laminate is only 'A6 inch thick, it's hard enough to make this a pretty heavy cut. So use your regular router, rather than a laminate trimmer. The fence under the laminate guides the flush-trimming bit's pilot, ensuring that the cut will be perfectly straight.
