Anyone know where you can get a piece of aluminum angle that goes around in a corner to start your first row of tiles in a tub surround? I tried 2 pieces wood but they bend when I screw em in. They have a nice piece of straight angle (1") at Depo but haven't figured out how to make it go around a corner. :scratch:

Well, with the angle just treat it like you would the pieces of wood. Put one angle on wall level and then slide it into the corner. Next piece you butt up against the other pieces flange and then level to it. Or you could buy this :tup1: http://www.contractorsdirect.com/Stringa-Level?sc=8&category=12

Thanks Jerry,

I was thinkin choice A but wondering if there was a one piece deal. Do you have the string-a level? Are they durable? It would take me a few jobs to justify and since most jobs I do are for free.......But what the heck - nice to have good tools :)
