@mcgaugh57 I …
@mcgaugh57 I personally own three wet saws and the smallest was less than 100 dollars and fits on a table top. Wet saw is the way to go. And agreed, with tiles that small score and snap is “iffy”.

@Solarpassive Still …
@Solarpassive Still wet saw is the way to go here, cutting 1″ tiles with a score and snap method is iffy at best.

@fanspeed1956 There …
@fanspeed1956 There is NO reason to put that much thin set under those tiles. It will cause the possibility of deflection from plane while installing them.

@mcgaugh57 I agree, …
@mcgaugh57 I agree, either a tile saw or a real glass cutter, its a tool easily found at the hardware store. It is not a nipper. You scribe the tile, then place a piece of wire on a table and lay the wire under the scribe mark. Hold down one side of the glass then tap the other side with a proper mallet and the tile breaks right on the line.

@Solarpassive Not …
@Solarpassive Not following you, I said use a tile saw not nippers.

@mcgaugh57 No, …
@mcgaugh57 No, never nip glass tiles. Use either a wet saw or a glass cutter. That makes no sense at all. A proper glass cutter is a wheel on the end of a shaft with different size notches in the opposite end. Less than 10 dollars.

Excuse me, but the …
Excuse me, but the cement backer unit should already be installed on the walls. I do not understand why you did that the way you did. Interesting. If you use the proper trowel then you do not need to remove excess thin set from between the tiles. I always dry set the tiles. I mean no offense, however, I have been doing tile since 1988. Over all, I wont like or dislike. Wondering why The center of the drain is not the starting point… Solarpasive

do you wait for the …
do you wait for the first coat of thin set to dry before you you put on the second coat? Thanks

Btw- this was the second segment on this installation. In part 1 they poured the sloped base and installed the waterproof membrane.

I am offended by the attack on laziness. I was born this way. I can do things perfectly well. I just take forever if I bother at all.

If they’re doing a small shower and have to start removing the paper and cleaning the tiles they set first at the end of the installing of tiles, what happens when you’re installing tiles in a large shower? Start at the front and work inwards, and only do 1/2 at a time?

First off it is not …
First off it is not concrete and if they used that they are dummies, you mud float that with fat mud mortar that is made out of portland cement and washed sand.

Ignore the know it all A-h0le He’s just picking on people here because no one will hire a jerk.
It makes him feel good to hide behind the internet like a coward and pick at random people he doesn’t know
DABOSS!

He’s on BLOCK and IGNORE

You really thing …
You really thing nipping glass is the way to do it ? Fragments going all over, cuts from the glass a huge amount of waste from breaking and a huge amount of time. A do it yourself tile saw is under $100 and saves a lot of work. And thin set coming up like that in small tiles is a unnessary mess.

yes i can cut the 8 …
yes i can cut the 8 to 10 feet of edge in about 5 minutes, but she can nip it and save a load of money.
as for the mess a wet sponge works perfect. Try it some time yourself

i watched your …
i watched your video and i saw no symmetry in your corners, symmetry would have been a mirror image you made no attempt to have equal pieces showing.
no wonder your name is attack.

Wow you are so …
Wow you are so wrong it’s comical. Nipping that glass is stupid and a waste of time. You can cut it with a wet saw in no time. And the mess of thin set at the end is a complete job fail.

no ,its how you …
no ,its how you gauge for glass tile, pay attention.

she did the job …
she did the job perfect. any one wanting to do this your self including females , the main point of the video i might add,
just do it and save your self the agony of letting a stranger in your bathromm who will steal your drugs from your medicine cabinet or worse.

why wouldnt they be …
why wouldnt they be it is the edge dumbass. Their is no other place for them to end. you must do real shity work
or you have never worked at all.
