To complete this task you will need the following items: Replacement tile/tiles Tile Adhesive Tile grout (ready mixed is easier) Masking tape Electric drill with 5mm masonry bit Cold chisel Wood chisel Tile adhesive spreader Tile Spacers Grout spreader Grout rake Plastic grout finishing tool Safety goggles, appropriate work gloves When working with ceramic tiles always wear safety goggles and thick work gloves ! Place the masking tape in two strips diagonally to form an X shape on the tile as shown in Fig 1.1 Using the 5mm bit drill holes at intervals along each strip of masking tape as shown in Fig 1.2 this will help stop the drill bit slipping, only drill the depth of the tile, you could wrap a piece of masking tape around the drill bit at the required depth to use as a guide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
