10-inch blade on a wet saw wanders too much for my tastes. Also, if you do it on a wet saw you're going to wear out one side of the blade and ruin it. So, it's best to have a blade dedicated to...

I haven't used Spectralock1 yet but I've used plenty of the other single component grouts. You can't wait 10 minutes to wash especially if it's a matte tile.

Spread as much grout as you can in one...

Sorry, I didn't see you message sooner. My preference is for the Noble Freestyle linear drain and it's for the reasons that I outlined in the post that you already linked to earlier.

I'm thinking Davy might have a technique for this?
