Gueze that sucks .. I hate fixing stuff that could easily be avoided. Even if I can charge someone the time it will take. We don't install these tiles so they pop right out. I swear some people think these tiles are Velcro'd in and be change at the snap of a finger.

Builders dont give out checks in this economy. They run and hide.

Hydroban vs Redguard

The colour "blue promotes communication and knowledge. It eliminates toxins, and is used to treat liver disorders and jaundice." *

The colour "red promotes energy, empowerment, and stimulation. Physically, it is thought to improve circulation and stimulate red blood cell production." *

* source http://designingonline.com/home-and-...feng-shui.html as quoted by www.Acquinox.com or call Acquinox at 866-407-7400.

So I guess your getting smarter working with blue and it may help on those days when your injured from the night before. If you suffer from jaundice you may appear green in colour while setting white tile....

Looking good Brian .. I can't wait to try that 4xlt .. Used some of the Permacolor today on my La Cresta jury is still out. Kind of like grouting with Peanut Butter.

Brian,

When I lay subway I find this cutter works great and takes up barely any room.

Brian-

So those tiles stuck right where you put 'em, just like 255? Unless there's an invisible ledger board that is!

Rick,
my small Superior is sitting right next to my medium one in storage.
Thats all I used to cut with using quarry And 4" & 6" wall tile, but now over the last 8-10 years with the use of larger tile I have come accustomed to using the bar cutter for everything.

Brad,
it performs just like 255, it seems a little fluffier.
