Yep, meant to be set in place same time as the tile. Those Schluter triangles in the leg under the tiles hold it in place with thinset mortar.

Thanks guys. Should have looked closer - the nice people of Schluter provided a diagram confirming above.

Hi all

Long time no post. I'm almost done with this job and at the point where I need to get the transition strip in place. This means I got a lotta triangles to cut. I was gonna cut one then use it as a guide on the wet saw. Any other ideas here? I'm also not totally sure what sequence to go about thinsetting the transition down. Since the underside of the ramp itself needs filled with thinset I was thinking I'd have to set the ramp first then set the last full tile (laid loose in my pics) and the triangles I'm going to cut.

Russ, I would make a jig to clamp on the table for those repetitive cuts. You should have a 90 degree angle piece made to clamp onto your table that came with that MK saw. You can just make a jig that fits into the corner of the table when that piece is attached.

I use some 1/4" medium density polyethylene for such jigs, but in past I have used thin plywood, which works as well, but isn't re-usable forever like the poly.

Make whatever works for you. Something that allows you to simply put a piece of tile on the table and make the same cut over and over.


My opinion; worth price charged.

What Cx said. I like using a small speed square with a C-clamp to hold it. I also like to set it so the cut starts at the corner of the tile. The way you have the tile set on the saw, the blade passing through the corner at the end of the cut will sometimes break off the 45 point. Especially when your blade starts to wear.

If your MK did come with the aforementioned 90* piece be sure to verify it is accurate when placed against the raised lip on the back of the table.

MY cheapo MK came with one - it ain't accurate.

At this juncture I’m going to gift the saw a new blade. I am I am no stranger to angle grinders but cannot find a way to lock the spindle on this one. I found the diagram attached but I do not have that wrench and I do not see any slats on the back side only another similar washer

Is a margin trowel like this my best bet for getting into tight spaces like these cut ends? Name:  IMG_4063.jpg

I would comb the mortar on the tile in that situation

In other words a more involved version of back buttering? I presume it would make sense to try and get at least some mortar keyed into the floor?

In that situation we usually wouldn't key in any mortar into the slab. It won't hurt to key in thinset but as long as the concrete is clean, those tiles will bond fine.
