Yes, definitely counter-clockwise. 😁

Iím driven a flathead screwdriver under the lip all the way around so I know itís not sticking there. I could actually start chiseling down but am very concerned about how much damage I might cause and how difficult it will be to fix.

Appreciate the advice.

That's a different looking drain than I've ever used before. Keep chipping away at the mud back under the grate. Patching won't be a problem. There's probably a bump or two molded in the plastic under the bottom edge of the grate.

I bought another just to make sure the bottom surface is flat (it is). I think Iím just going to use my RotoRip to cut the edge down. Worse case scenario if that doesnít come out right, I can chisel it out. If thatís the case Iím guessing I can patch it back up with some thinset.

Itíll be a few days before I can get to it but will let you know how it goes.

Thanks again

Yeah, I'm surprised you're having that much trouble. Maybe that brand is a little softer plastic than I've worked with. Sounds kinda flimsy. Yes, let us know.

So I got the drain ripped down and am feeling pretty good about the result. Iím really hoping a line of silicone will be all it takes to keep it in place with the ability to remove in the future.

While I have your ear- before I start the floor do you think itís worth thinset patching a few rough spots? Iíve attached some pics. There were a few sandy top spots and after doing a light vacuuming thereís a couple spots now that are just a bit low and rough. Maybe a 1/32 to 1/16 lower. Recommend skimming these over with thinset first?

Sorry if pics are upside. Theyíre right side up on my phone.

Thanks!

Hello folks,
I found the perfect curb top tile for our shower but discovered that when centered on the curb, the tiles on the sides underneath fit just about perfectly flush. That wouldnít be a bad thing if I didnít have to thinset them to the curb itself, which would then push there face out too far. I was wondering if I could instead use some sort of liquid nails or epoxy instead since it would be able to go on thinner.
Thanks for the input.
