I've never seen a tool exactly like that. Must be an old time cat's paw. Love those old tools.

My new one looks similar to this.

Yeah, Marion. That's what I thought you had. That nail puller is cool.

Sooo, the tiles are coming next weekend. Landlord ordered Italian porcelain full body tiles. I wanted to use Ditra. When doing Ditra on stairs, do you only use it on the horizontal surfaces (treads and landing), or also on the risers?

If there is plywood for the risers, I'd also use Ditra on the plywood risers.

Yes, they are plywood. Do I have to do something with the edges? No waterproofing needed, it's indoors.

You're using Ditra because it's a far better tiling substrate than the bare plywood. As far as the edges/corners, you don't need to do add anything to them.
