Thank you! I just worked for two hours cleaning up thinset. Using a carbide cutting wheel on a Dremel is doing the trick. It also opens up some of the tighter joints without obvious alteration of the...

I did. It helped a lot. I also started free-handing because I couldnít square the fence to the blade. And I think I just got better at it too.

New Question

I managed to install the Ditra with little more than some anxiety but no big slip ups. I spent hours dry fitting my tile and last night cut all the tiles for the edges on my new tile saw. I was able...

Thanks Tonto. I'm not going to rush this so my plan is to mix just enough for one row at a time to start. I've laid out the tile and marked each sheet where they go as I randomly staggered them to...

Thank you for the info. Looks like I'll have a bit of trial and error. The good thing is I am impressed with the quality of the tile. The mesh is sturdy so each square is fairly easy to...

Good to know. My tile is exactly like that. I still have to dry fit it which I suspect will take longer than the actual tiling because I'm picky.

It looks like I'll be starting to tile the floor this weekend. 2" marble hex on mesh over Ditra (I'm more than good on the deflection). I know, I know marble is the devil but this will be a rarely...

Yeah, CX, I figured you would say that which is why I deliberately kept my project specifics out of it. I really think my question is pertinent to the OP's. Clearly caulking it is trapping water and...

It looks exactly like what happened when I stupidly used mastic for a tiled shower floor years ago. The discolored grout was mold.

Probably has at least one layer of Calcimine paint too which has the potential of interfering with adhesion if moisture from the thinset migrates through cracks or holes in the oil paint.
