Tools & Adhesives
#1 Wheeled Tile & Glass Nippers have a set of disc shaped wheels on spring-loaded handles used to cut tile and glass. Replacement wheels are sold separately.
#2 Tile Cutters are for thicker tiles, plates and crockery. Better tile nippers have tungsten-carbide cutting edges and spring-loaded handles.
#3 Glass Cutters practice makes perfect and is absolutely epic when it works.
#4 Weldbond Adhesive – Non-toxic white glue, safe for indoor use/kids and dries clear in most circumstances.
#5 Clear e6000 Adhesive – Toxic adhesive, clear is my preference, use in well ventilated area, great for glass and not for kids.
#6 Mastic is for tiling dry areas, sets faster than Thinset and has an odor that lingers.
#7 Tile Thinset is used for areas where water is present, it sets slower than mastic and is harder to remove if you change your mind.
#8 Grout comes with sand and without sand. Use unsanded grout for any gaps less than ⅛” inch. Always seal grout.
