Hi “W”

I’d go with 3/8” trims; the 3/8 is the size of the outside L so the 5/16 tile will sit inside the L nicely.

Good luck.

Schluter can be tinkered with to make work when tile becomes proud or Schluter is proud. 5/16” tile will take either a 3/8” or 5/16” profile, depends on your wall flatness and bond coat thickness. 3/8” (100’s) will give you more margin for error/play for imperfect conditions. Go with 3/8” and you can play with your tile as need be.

Which "Schluter edge trim" did you have in mind, W?

Having just measured a piece of of Rondec, I can say the nominal measurement for Rondec is from the top of the bonding flange to the top of the profile. Were you to place a tile actually measuring 3/8ths" thick on top of the flange of the 3/8ths" Rondec, the top of the tile and the top of the Rondec would be flush. Schluter wants the profile never to be higher than the top of the tile, but accepts the top of the tile being slightly higher than the top of the profile.

My opinion; worth price charged.

FWIW, many tile these days, along with most of the Schluter products, are actually metrically sized. Some day, the US may catch up to the rest of the world and use a more logical system...regardless of what it says...it's best to actually measure or read the fine print!

What could be more logical than sixteenth-of-an-inch?

Or a yard? Which is three feet, of course. And what's a foot? (no, no, silly, not that kinda foot) Twelve inches, of course. C'mon, Jim, what could be more intuitive?

I got no metric measuring stick here by the ol' computer, but the 3/8ths-inch Rondec (says so onna label onna piece in my key-chain, Jim) measures really, really close to 3/8ths of an inch.

Metric is good unless you’re framing with US lumber and sheet goods. Even crazy framer from Canada uses the empirical fat max tape.

Mmmm, I do believe that would more likely be an Imperial calibrated tape, Christopher. Although, I suppose, any sort of measuring tape would be concerned with empirical results, eh?

Ahh, thanks CX!! Suppose I was half right, thought Imperial was foreign because the Japanese. Always learning in unexpected ways

Well, the Japanese did have their empire, Christopher, just not the one from which we got our Imperial measuring system, eh? And the British folks from whom we got it had the good sense to switch to the Metric system as I understand. We're about the only hold-outs and that does not speak well of us, methinks.

And no one has learned more on these forums than have I.

Mapei ceramic tile mortar is a "thinset mortar" and can not be applied with a 3/4" notch trowel. to notch your thinset that thick you would need an LHT (Large and heavy tile mortar).
