Nice jig Doug. I use the same method, and know I have shared it here a time or two. Great minds think alike

That's the only way to clip tumbled marble too.

Thats the only way to clip multiple anything's.


jigs made from tile are great because they won't hurt your saw blade, are cheap and easy to make..... and...... other stuff.

I have made them from tile, CBU, and even ply wood. With the plywood I make a groove for the tile saw blade to go into with a wood saw beforehand.

No you can use the 45 guide that comes with the DeWalt. It's just not accurate with tumbled stone. You knew that

Another thing about using a jig is that you can clip multiple corners easier, especially if you had to clip all 4 corners.

Next round of tile saw designing, they really need to work on the trays. Rubber top coming loose, grooves filling with tile shards, and they need to make it easier for us to clamp on tiles from multiple angles without the clamps hitting the tray (see pic in post 1429) Or maybe I just need a better clamp.

I love the solid plastic tops on the Super Tile Masters, I wish they would put them on all their saws.

Wall Anchors for Non Blocked Grab Bars

Just came across this little pdf from Cornell University on Grab Bar locations, types of anchors and their associated strengths. I have a family friend that wants one installed in an existing shower and thought I'd see whats new and exciting in anchor design. Nothing new, but confirmational information you can use and digest.

I just wrapped up this project using a sharp-edged unglazed porcelain mosaic. Problem was that the client wanted a border design which wasn't available. Solution? Build the border myself!!
I used the wire rods from landscaping flags for my grid spacers and I have a roll of scrim fabric, which I used for the backing. The mosaic was built face-down and each tile was fixed to the scrim using a drop of Zap-A-Gap CA+ cyanoacrylate glue. Lots of family fun with the kids stripping the tesserae from the full-color sheets.

Shaun,

The horizontal wire spacers are glued to the board and the vertical ones are loose? Almost looks like an old hand-set type setup (like old newspaper headlines), all that's missing are some end blocks to secure the "lines" of tile.

Awesome attention to detail.

Shaughnn, I couldn't help but notice your grout lines are more accurate than sheet tile I've seen.
You just reminded me of an old contractor friend who's license plate reads YES WAY

Absolutely awesome technique and superb installation .
I'm impressed how you worked out the layout issues.

Got to give the lady credit for finding the right person to perform her idea.

Shaughn- very nice. So how did you figure out what to charge for that?
