How to remove broken soap dish

Stall shower, concrete backer behind the tile, cracked soap dish was attached with thinset.

I will need to re-set a new dish in the same location. How deep to I have to dig?

Best was to remove without damaging adjacent tile and or too much damage to the backer board. Nice clean surgical removal

a grout saw would be your best surgical option, a flat head screw driver or a chisel would work

Dremel drill with a ball shaped diamond bit. If the grout’s kinda soft (like a ceramic tile vs. porcelain) a carbide bit may work. Take it down in layers, one mm or so at a time. You can thinset or epoxy the next one in. Salvaging these is never a fun option..

Light taps with a hammer and chisel or five-in-one tool. Be sure to “key” thinset into back of new soap dish. Should have no trouble at all.

Nice to see you. I’ve been back but pretty quiet. Lot of top notch tile guys on here, mostly I just read.

Best way to seal a small joint marble sills

Horizontal joint between two engineered marble tops over pony wall,stall shower

Grout and grout sealant, or just a small line of white silicone?

Silicone or color matched epoxy like a stone guy would use.

I agree. Use a white silicone or caulk, like Phenoseal. The epoxy would be stronger though.

Placement if shower frame?

Not really a tiling question but

6" wide marble sill and threshold. Should the shower frame be in the middle, or closer to inside or outside?

I have to cut out a channel for the frame at the knee wall overhang, so before I cut, would like some opinions

John, maybe it's just me but I'm not following you when you say the shower frame. Do you mean the wood framing?

Don't understand about the knee wall either. Can you post a pic of what you're asking?

John, it'll really help if you'll keep all your project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered.

Looks as though the metal is already cut to lengths. Place the metal on the top of the wall between the shower and tub and that will determine where it will need to be placed. Where it fits is where it will have to go.

Will do CK, got carried away.

Thanks DAvy, of course already cut, I was just about to reposition and re-drill through the tile

I don't think the paint will last over the aluminum, cleaned with mineral spirits, lightly sanded, primed with self etching spray primer, then spray painted.

Anyway, how do you guys fix drilled holes in tiles besides replacing the tile?

I once used bondo and a high gloss appliance touch up paint. It was not in a wet zone however, worked pretty well
