Thanks Larry and bc,

Posted by Dodgeman on August 11th, 2000 12:32 PM

for the replies on the tile over particle board. I am not going to take a chance and put the ceramic tile directly over the particle board, but I think I will go ahead and put the Hardiboard down first, and then the tile over that. (I sure am not going to try to rip up the p/b at this point!)
Larry, what do you think of using a mastic type adhesive to help hold the Hardiboard to the p/b rather than thinset? What method do you use to mix the thinset to get it to a consistency of peanut butter? Mix by hand or machine? Do you let the thinset slake for a while before using? When setting the tile do you tap them into place with a mallet or the like?
Thanks in advance for any additional help,
