Hi Andrew, Welcome aboard. I'm still trying to figure out what you're driving at. Tile setting sans pencil and sans measuring tape? I don't think so.

Umm, Im going to jump in here and insist the ole trusty "Margin Trowel" Lets think about this.

It can be used for many things. It makes a great window key when locked out of a house. Slips right in there with a handle to push your window open.
Forgot my yogurt spoon. Yup...
Always mixin and scrapin.
You can even unscrew a razor knife screw if your corners are rounded.
Lets not forget making mud bunnies, cant do that with your tape measure,
guess you could try.
Great for poppin a chipped tile off the wall that got missed.
How about fencing with other tile folk, now there's a sport.
While it may not be the most important tool it is definitely one of the most versatille

Yeah,and I was envious to see Gueuze's worn down margin collection.Worn down "spoons" are a sign of longevity.Which means they stuck around for a while. I actually get emotionally attached to my margins.But somehow they always grow legs,or should I say wings.Common cause of margin's dissappearing is when the dirty buckets of water get tossed at the end of the day.Ive went back to several jobs and found some of them where help was dumping waetr

Scott...those drywall screws may work great in plastic electrical boxes, but aren't gonna work so good with metal electrical boxes. You posted a pic of a left-turning screw thread...you gotta turn those puppies counter-clockwise to get 'em in.
