    Hahahaha ... Dr. Villa has seen this one ... The light which keeps burning out is wired

    The drain for the tub is bigger than the one for sink so you nay have to do some work with
    that. If you are doing a complete gut this shouldn't be a big deal.The new connection into the

    acetone becau...

    Plugs in fixtures are not the best way to go. What/where is this light being used? If you want

    I always hose off the tools at end of day ... NEVER let thinset or Rapidset dry on your tools.
