Yes! It's become a long term goal! And I'm finding out the hard way that mistakes are much, much harder to fix this way! Just dug up 4 tiles yesterday, and found two more I'm unhappy with this...

Thanks, Jaz. I'm good. The thicknesses are absolutely different, and absolutely not 8 mm, but as you say, just changing mortar thickness is adjusting them well. I'm moving on! Thanks for the...

Wow, Jaz. Now I'm really confused. Got out the calipers, and clearly neither are 8 mm. The box is labeled United States Ceramic, which Roca bought out. So I think I just need to verify that these...

Ceramic tile Pinwheel pattern with mosaic tile?

I would like to do a pinwheel pattern using Roca tile (8.7 mm thick) and Roca Mosaic (9.8 mm). Do you believe I can make up the difference with mortar thickness?

Mission Accomplished!

Everything went great. The pipe nipple came loose with minimal effort, and it had partially disintegrated, so I had to fish some pieces out with a magnet. Replaced the copper washer line with PEX...

Yeah, Joe. I'll find out tomorrow, actually. Not looking forward to it. We have exercised that main valve. But it's 60 years old. I'll have a wet vac handy, and be ready to work fast.

Thanks! New question - Pre-finished or paint?

Is pre-finished hardie plank any better than primed, paint it yourself? Since I'm doing a small section, painting in advance isn't any big deal. But will the finish be as good? Yes, I use quality...

Hardie Plank on angled side gable

I'll be ripping off rotted wood siding on a side gable. It meets the roof at an angle (see photo). I realize I have to wrap and flash. It's 50's era, so I'm pretty sure I'll find sheathing. Do I...

9 yr old gas fireplace, pilot light stays on until I try to start main burner

Best Fire, natural gas, safety pilot kit (PSS101). The name is deceptive. This has never been a good fireplace. Every year it takes about an hour to get this thing to start. The pilot light stays...

I want to add a receptacle to create a 2 gang arrangement with the second of the three ways. I understand that I can't create an always-on receptacle. Can I still create a switched receptacle? Can...

Splice Fabric sheathed wire to Romex?

Is it okay to splice fabric sheathed wire to Romex? If so, is the size of the fabric sheathed cable marked anywhere? How do I determine what size Romex? What do I do with the ground wire?
Thanks!

Yeah, Joe. It was some pressure fit soffit vents that didn't pressure fit so well when the weather got cold and dry.

I did not make a splice. The wires appeared to be in good condition, so I just separated them (since the sheathing was gone) to come back to at a later date. All was well for several days. Went...

And another thing

Another weird thing was that the voltage probe lit up right away on all switches except one. One of the three way switches took several minutes to light up the probe.
