Re: Cut Of The Day


If I wanted to look like an online hero, I could run around and say that anyone using mastic for a backsplash is a hack because mold will form behind the tile.
Guess we all have our opinions, preferred methods and somewhat of a willingness to work with our clients to provide a home improvement over the existing facility.

I'm going to search around now on facebook for contractors that post photos of mastic being used I will call them a hack

I can turn a whole house into a boat with that stuff. It's pretty impressive.

I'm the only one in the market doing it too.

I had to move the washer back and change out the tile. Didn't realize I never took an after picture.

Not the most difficult but not bad with a grinder and cheap tile.

Not bad. 9 time out of 10, it breaks on the last cut from the vibration. Do you use a plywood backer to make the cut?

Yep. First attempt and it worked. I walked in the house very carefully and set it very carefully. The second place it was likely to break was when I pushed it into the thin set.
