Re: 8 X 24 Plank, Spacing


I use RLS with anything 8" by 8" or larger. I use the 1/16ths because they're easier to break off and just use spacers. If there's too much variation in size I'll jump up to 3/16ths grout line much easier to fudge and less noticeable.

To break them off just kick them (floor tile) or hit them with a rubber mallet, 5 - in - 1, etc (wall tile) perpendicular to the direction the wedges run. We have only used the 1/8" and they break very easy using this method.

I know that, no big deal to me to use spacers if I go over a 16th I just buy them in large quantities.
