    Hi Darren,
    This video was sent to me from someone in Canada that used the BBB with a 36x36 - (914 x 914 ) That's a pretty big tile, wouldn't you agree?

    We can't install like that here. To much of the tile is not supported with thin set. Not picking your methods apart. Just saying we do it different. Yes I agree that the thin set was wet in the video. Still shows the tool will support that size. I said this before, wont hurt my feelings if you guys don't want to try the BBB. I know the mindset of tilers. We tend to stick to our own ways and don't like change

    Sorry Phil, I was just being sarcastic with the last post. Spot fixing is totally contrary to British Standard 5385 for tiling.

    That's just a picture of an idiot's "work" which one of our members rectified.

    I'm fixing 50sqm of 600mm x 600mm porcelain Monday. Can I get one by then?! It's hot and I don't like sweating.

    I was hoping you were not serious about "spoting" the tiles! I was only in Europe once in France and saw some tiles that had fallen off the exterior of a couple buildings and they WERE spotted like that. That's why I wasn't really quite sure. I'm glad to hear we are on the same page with installation methods. I will receive the case of BBB's by Tues next week. Then I will figure out details to get them over there. I have 5 guys that have contacted me already to receive one. My offer was the first 12.
