    been a bit of an odd day today.....I did not sleep a wink again last night....
    went to a church in tooting in the morning then over to Rays place to pick up the tiles for this job.....

    should be fun..........1200x600 porcel-thin tiles in a room you could not swing a cat!......hehhehehe

    the pipe end will all be covered............so you will only see a whole tile and a half tile..........and when the sanitaryware is in, they will be equal.......
    and not a single grout join will match up......but i know where you are going.........I will send you a PM....you will wet yourself!

    yes mate........I find them easier to pull out!....everyone seems to be aiming for cheaper and cheaper.....spacers seem to snap off in the joints all the time.....gets right on my nerve's...I hate having to cut them out with a stanley blade....
    as I "could" chip a tile.......these pull out easy......(with some grips.......sometimes!).......heehheheee

    I use them all the time Jay!..............but, because this room was Soooooo out of square......I decided to use horse shoes......that way, as I was dry-Laying........I knew it would fit.....

    if I had used wedges.....there can be minimal tolerence changes (in a dry lay!)......and that minimal movement means you need to get the cutter/grinder/nips out again.................and I did not want to hang around for 1 minute more than was required!

    All the best

    Did not mind the look of that tile on its own but not sure when you get a few together the main grain is quite bold :confused:
