How to best use Stanley Mirror Mastic?

I am installing a 4ft X 6ft bathroom mirror on a 1/4 inch thick equally sized sheet of plywood already installed on the bathroom wall. I'm using a L bracket bracket on the bottom for support and planning to use Stanly Mirror Mastic on the back of the mirror. After the mirror is installed, a ''picture'' frame will be installed on top of the mirror/plywood backer board. I am uncertain about how to use the Mastic as I have never used it before.

What is the best way to use the Mastic? Do I have to use clips at the top of the mirror or will the mastic hold it to the wall?

Make sure the wall where the mirror is going to be, is perfectly flat.
if you are going to install the 4x6 ft mirror. you need minimum of 3/8" board, if not 1/2".
yu use mastic the same way you use caulking. on the safety side, I recommend you install upper and lower railing.
the mastic will hold the mirror, three glop on each side and enough in the body of the mirror. press on hard, but too hard you will break the mirror
the mastic will take about a week to cure completely.

What kind of mirror should I use in my bathroom?


All bathrooms need a mirror - it's the place you are most likely to shave, do your facial care routine and dry your hair.

When choosing a mirror for the bathroom, pick one that is the same width as your vanity/ sink unit otherwise it won't blend with the design of the room.

Mirror glued to wall


That's actually a pretty common method for professionally installing bathroom mirrors. As you mentioned, tape a star pattern on the mirror and then use a thin piece of piano type wire to slice through the adhesive. Keep the ends of the wire as close to the wall as possible while cutting so that you don't break the mirror. A local glass company can provide the best type of wire for the job as well as tips on the best way to get the job done - particularly if you imply that you'llbe buying your new miror from them. Be sure to wear leather palmed gloves and eye protection when doing this job!

The staples are not going deep enough into our hardwood. We tried a different nailer as well, and the cleats wouldn't work either. Tried both 1 1/2" and 2" staples and cleats. We're installing 3/4 inch oak...


The working pressure of this tool is 85 - 90 PSI max. Do not over power it or you risk O-ring breakage. These guns are adjustable for floor thickness. The adjustment is simply by adding and removing shims on the floor contact part of the tool. For 3/4" the pad should be 5/16" thick without shims

Here a few examples: * 5 inch trim saws, usually with a fine-toothed blade and often with the blade located on the left side of the motor, for easy viewing of the blade path. These are available in 120V, AC models, and rechargeable battery models in various DC voltages. * 6 1/2 inch saws, as shown in the illustration above, used for cutting to length nominal lumber for construction, as well as ripping lumber, and cutting plywood or composite material. * 7 1/4 inch saws, often call skillsaws, from the name of a major circular saw manufacturer, Skill. These are the backbone of the construction industry, used for cutting lumber up to 2 1/4 inch thick. They are used for cutting framing lumber to length, and ripping lumber. They also have a number of optional blades which can be used for cutting composite materials, concrete, ferrous and nonferrous metal sheeting, pipe, tubing, and even cold-rolled steel bar stock. * 8 and 10 inch saws, used for cutting to length larger lumber or timbers, up to 4 inches thick. These are heavier, more cumbersome tools used mostly in industrial work. * Worm-drive saws have a gearbox with a worm-geardrive, and are found in 7 1/4 inch models which are most commonly used for ripping lumber or cutting plywood decking or sheathing. They typically have the blade on the left side of the machine, to make watching the blade path easier when cutting parallel to the edge of a wide sheet of plywood.
