Ok here's a link to the other thread http://www.tilersforums.com/43-tiling-forum/65515-tile-spacers-4.html Unfortunatley the link to the TTA article (post 14 from John Benton) doesn't work any more, which is annoying as it was quite a good read. I'll see if I can find it somewhere else.
Wow, even serving you time, as a kid,never left one in, not one , hard to believe and can't be proved,but well done Andy[emoji106]
,I knew you would be the 1st to answer my question with a negative , you hate us so called multi traders with a Charles bronson kinda vengeance [emoji7][emoji8]
likewise andy.In 32 years of tiling I've never left a spacer in..
I use spacers as pegs and only space the horizontal line.....and I've never put a spacer in a floor tile on my life just do it with stright edges and a keen eye. .
Just the way ive always done it and always will. .
On floors no spacers full stop every spacer placed could have been a tile instead !! Stick to your lines or lasers !!We are having a constant battle with learners and employers of apprentices regarding leaving tile spacers in the joint. This is something I have never done on any job ( that I can remember:rolleyes5. There are loads of YouTube vids and many pieces of literature that show the spacer in the joint but it will never state that is has to be removed (annoying :mad2: ). There are lots of reasons why it isn't acceptable. Has anyone had any experience with this, e.g., customer, site agent , Clark of works, architect or another fixer, OR tiling lecturermg_smile:. Want side of the fence are you on!!
(apologies if this has been discussed before..)
