tile-in sink, what size trowel can be used

Posted by kim defreese on May 2nd, 2000 05:48 PM

I'm installing 4x4" 1/4" thick ceramtic tile kitchen counter-top. Have a "tile-in" sink that I am installing and I'm using a 1/4" notch trowel to apply the thinset. I tiled a small section on the otherside of the kitchen. Measuring the tile and grout thickness it is about 2/16" lower than the sink lip which is 3/8" thick. Also so when I apply the adhesive caulking under the lip it will probably raise the sink another 1/16"(maybe). My question is can I use 3/8" trowel or is that too thick of a thinset to apply for that size tile and would I have to set the tile deep into to the thinset to make the height work? I'm thinking that I'm pressing the tile into to thinset too deep using the 1/4" but I would have to lay the tile on top with out any pressure to makeup the thickness I need. You guys have been great with your advise and help on my prior message. Thanks Kim
