Unfortunately for older glued floating hardwood floors, the multifunction tool does not provide all the accessories to complete a repair. These floors require a groove cleanout so they can effectively fit together again. Otherwise re-attachment is not possible without the final outcome looking like a repair. They simply will not engage and you're left with a repair board that will not fit back into place. Attempting to clean the glue with hand tools may work, but will take longer and is likely to cause damage to the surface of the board itself.
Most hardware stores, back in the paint section, have what they call an "oops" area. An oops area is where all the custom coloring is done.......sometimes twice. The quart, gallon, and five gallon containers from the employees first attempts at the customers colors are usually reduced price steals. Where else are you going to find five gallons of black 30 year exterior latex enamel for $15.00? Concrete paints, porch and deck polymers, and the always abundant latex varieties are all victims to colorant errors. This is something I do faithfully every time I enter my Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware stores. Always seems to be a gallon black or a shade of gray in there all year long. Beware of the paint Nazi who thinks she can tell you how to paint and with what. PVA primer CAN be pigmented.
Another large plus of grommet is that while you are happily making holes for nails and hooks you might not realize that you are also putting in holes made perfect for bungee cords, the grommets intended purpose. Now you can suspend your cardboard walls overhead and make them ceilings. Shifting walls and ceilings are easily made by stretching out a sheet of cardboard so it is suspended mid air. Using a PVC or 2 x 2 lightweight frame to stretch and anchor the bungee's to. Moving the frame can easily be accomplished with air rams or motors. Even easier is to suspend the sheet on a frame and have it anchored so you can manipulate the cardboard itself. Probably somewhat safer as well.
I like creating with my hands. I especially enjoy creating useful items out of wood. Unfortunately, my self-designed and self-built garage 6 X 3 foot workbench has a tendency to become littered with miscellaneous "stuff", and I find myself at my wit's end attempting to build projects on a piece of plywood strung across two folding sawhorses. Not ideal, I will agree. I do appreciate the convenience of being able to take down and put away the components of my makeshift working surface. What I don't like is that the working surface is not that stable and requires a separate set of clamps to hold the working top to the sawhorses.
Now use a grease pencil and mark tile to be cut. If you only have a few cuts you can even take them to Lowes and have the tech cut alone your lines but you better be good. Now let this all dry if you have any areas where you did not install the tile do to it is not cut yet, use a putty knife and scrape the wall clean. It is much easier to clean now while wet than after it dry's clean all your tools. And let it sit for 24 hours. Come back and mix your grout, modern grout's have dry acrylic in them already but manufacturers vary so check read the label you might have to add wet additive. Now the trowel that puts grout on the wall is a hard rubber bottom that is real smooth.
The first thing is plenty of screwdrivers in various sizes. Nearly every computer and other electronic items have different kinds of screws that you will have to remove. I visited my local Wal-Mart and found an 18 piece screwdriver set on sale for $5.00. It works very well. I should have picked up several of them but I then went to my local Harbor Freight store and found another similar set for $5.00. It is good to have several on hand.
