Doesn't really etch the surface, maybe wipe down well prior???
Maybe not critical.
I love the brilliant simplicity of the thing though.

That is a great idea BUT if you had some 1/2 Starboard on the sides and the bottom it would work sooooo sooo smooth and be super easy to clean up. I use it a lot for marine applications. It's a lot like white cutting board material. I can get a 2' x 4' 1/2 sheet at home depot for 54 bucks. The tile would really slide nicely on it.

Also ends up notched in the wrong direction, though.

Or just use a smaller notched trowel along with your 1/2 notched trowel on the floor.

And the mortar's not keyed-in to the back of the tile.

I'd probably rather see a flat trowel or wide putty knife in place of the notched trowel and fastened to give a little for force to burn it in. Then use the notch trowel on the floor or wall.

That said, we've installed thousands of sq ft without burning in the thinset that looks to be holding up just fine. And I'm talking about back when we would throw in a Quart of admix with the water and call it good. We spent whatever time was needed to get a clean substrate.

That would make it more practical Davy, if you got it dialed in it would save a good amount of time on a large plank install
