I agree Chris, I always like to see what other people are working on in different areas and how they approach installation. It is nice to see the others that have that passion to go the extra mile.

Their product sheet says to test by spreading mastic on a piece and allow to dry fo 3 to 4 weeks to be sure it cures out. If you do decide to move forward I wouldn’t grout until it’s dries out.

The Husky is definitely heavy. The rolling stand is 40lbs and I wouldn’t buy the saw without it. It would be way to awkward by yourself. I can unload and load onto my F350 by myself. It’s not bad...
