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.

Video on calking tub to floor


I would suggest using 'relief cuts' in the strip so you can make the bend, and then continue -- though using a caulk gun would be better. With standard caulk you can just use your finger and a little water to leave a nice finish. I believe you will find it cheaper as well -- a tube of caulk is around 2 or 3 dollars -- and a caulk gun is a dollar or so.

How to remove tick?


First of all put a little vinegar in the dogs water that keeps the ticks away next ticks look like a small crabs the size of a dot and becomes the size of a pencils eraser.. it sucks the blood of the dog and get that big. When you see a tick that big you have to pinch the dogs skin below the ticks teeth and pull it off and mash it or it can get on you. It loves blood. If you pull just the body the teeth will keep sucking and what a bloody mess I\'ve done alot of pinchen. Good luck

Rotten egg smell/sewage smell in restaurant


check for dead rodents in the ceiling. Have a plumber check for blocked /leaking drains especially around the dish washer drains . If you have had pest exterminators in lately then something may have taken the bait . IT will be best to get in professionals to remove the smell as quickly as possible as to customers a smelly restaurant is equal to bad hygiene and food poisoning.

Ok, I need help finding a replacement part for my mirrored closet door. I have the stanely doors with the serial #17-4264y-000 and I need the bottom roller piece that goes inside a metal bracket. I have a...


I know this is an old question but I wanted to leave a relevant solution. I searched tonight for this Stanley 17-4264y-000 part because I needed one due to the cracking of the black plastic that holds the wheel. Your best bet is going on Ebay and searching for part number 17-4264y-000 or, as stated in the auction that I found, search for one of these part numbers "Please note: this part may also be used as a replacement for part no: 17-4264X-000, ACME 4012 or 4012 - X2." You get the metal housing and all of the internal plastic parts including the wheel that you have damaged.

It will cost you $33 USD to have one shipped from UK, on Ebay, but it is a lot cheaper than a whole new door. Also this new and improved part has a plastic wheel that has a metal inner axle that has wheel bearings. The one that I am replacing is has the wheel and axle in one solid plastic piece. I am sure you can find a local shop or online store here in the US but I am being lazy and posting the first few hits on an internet search. I will definitely dig deeper online before buying one for $33 USD on Ebay.

How to clean REALLY REALLY BAD military bathroom grout


I salute those who serve our country and provide me the freedoms that allow me to learn at my own free will. For that reason, I hope this can help you and all who read this answer. Thanks Again.

I just learned about this in November 2014. Its called the Cleaning Paste. It was part of sales presentation that presented products for cleaning my home and business.

See the photo, I simply used the cleaning paste and a Rubbermaid brush! Scrubbed it on, then used the EnviroCloth to wipe it off.

Didn't have to let it sit for hours or dry and because it was in the kitchen, I had to be able to get it done quickly.

If you like my pictured results, this is the website I purchased it from.
www.ChristineFrey.Norwex.biz

Along with the Cleaning Paste; I currently own and use the EnviroCloth and just water for cleaning windows, counter tops, shower doors, the microwave, and every other stainless appliance I own. So far, every product I tried has performed above my expectations and I have had customers tell me, that "I'm Persnickety"!

Simply put, the quality and results are impressive. clean-really-really-bad-military-2a0cfbtak4y3luwyen1qnfe3-5-0.jpg
