You probably want to use like a hole saw, they do sell cutters at the home improvement stores that are made to cut holes, the name of the tool set slips my mind, hope this helps Tim

I inadvertently place a hot pot in my swan stone sink. I small portion melted the sink. Seems like a touch up paint would be the answer. Is there such a product?l

It can be sanded. That pot must have been really hot to cause damage. See if this link helps. Without seeing a pic I can't advise further. Good luck!

I have a 15 year old Moen bathfaucet 4650-P that I want to replace. I can't figure out how to remove this old faucet. It has three holes with the outer holes on 4 inch spacing. The two handles and the...


There is definitly a nut or nuts holding the faucet to the sink. It could be around the center shaft that goes through the sink, but most likely 2 small nuts that screw onto the 2 outer stubs. These are your hot and cold wated supplies. crawl underneath the cabinets and check. It might be difficult to get them off, but they do make a pipe wrench tool that has a rotating head that makes this easier

Cut a small line through swanstone granite sink when installing undercount . Fixed with epoxy. Will that work?


It should work, I would imagine it's pretty conspicuous, but you shouldn't have problems with leaking if the epoxy filled the hole completely. I would clean the repair on the outside of the sink with rubbing alcohol, then put a decent amount of silicone to completely cover the repair area to insure no water gets through if there are any compromises in the epoxy.

Swanstone sink with chip near the faucet but on the edge near the bowl. ANyway to patch this...a filler so to speak?


Unfortunately Swanstone does not have a repair kit for this type of damage. The chip will be permanant. They do offer a limited lifetime warranty which if a defect is found they will repair or replace at their discretion. Of course you will be responsible for any labour cost as per their warranty and they do not go into any detail on how to repair impact damage. For more information go to www.theswancorp.com

I have a composit kitchen with knock outs for 4 faucets. How do I knock them out?


Do NOT try to knock them out! The correct way is to drill them out as needed for your particular faucet. Refer to your installation instructions for your faucet to determine which holes need to be drilled out. There is a school of thought that it is best to drill them all and use a hole cover on those you don't use since once the sink is installed you will no longer be able to drill them at exactly factory locations.

You will need a 1-3/8" hole saw (my preference is Lenox brand # 30022), an arbor (a special drill bit for the hole saw Lenox brand # 2L), and preferably a varible speed drill.

Turn your sink upside down and place onto a clean padded surface to protect the finish and is also a padding that you can bear to throw away. Locate the center of the hole to be drilled. If there is no dimple from the manufacturer at dead center, you will have to give it your best guess. Mark that spot and with the arbor securely mounted into the hole saw, begin drilling at 1/4 to 1/2 speed of the drill, until the tip of the arbor had drilled completely through. Remove the hole saw and turn the sink right side up. The hole that the arbor made in now called a pilot hole and will guide your hole saw perfectly. By drilling from the top side you eliminate any chipping. Insert arbor into the pilot hole and begin drilling using light to moderate pressure until the hole saw has drilled through. Be careful! As you sense you are nearly through the drilling, only use light pressure so you don't lose control of the drill when the saw pops through and accidentally smack your sink.

Removal of single hole kithcen faucet.


There is a bracket that slides between the threaded shaft and the bottom of the sink. There is usually a nut which is tightened up against this bracket. When this nut is loosened, the bracket will slide out. Of course, you first have to unfasten the two water supply lines. Once the bracket is removed, the two water lines which are made into the faucet are gently bent and the whole thing is removed from the top of the sink. Hope this helps.
