When laying large-format tiles even with the system SVP seams often disagree as it is difficult to move on after the glue additive. To avoid this happening, you can make a hammer. It is convenient to knock out a tile, even under the wall where ordinary mallet is useless. Besides a hammer upon impact with the side of the tiles will never split, so the tool is extremely useful and greatly speeds up the finishing process.
- strip or sheet metal section from 4 mm;
- profile tube: 30×30 mm;
- area 40×40 mm or more;
- the handle from the grinder;
- rubber for cutting out lining.
The process of making a reverse hammer
A hammer is a segment shaped tube with a spatula and focusing on the edges. The main pipe is put a short profile of larger diameter attached to a handle. With a sharp pinch in the latter, the sliding on the main pipe banging against its stop, thereby moving the device together with tiles, to which he applied. To a hammer worked as it should, even with large format tiles, it needs to be of thick metal to increase the weight.
For the base of the hammer you will need a cut shaped tube 30-40 cm
It is necessary to weld the square pipe more, which can slide from the top. It is welded from 4 blanks cut from strips or sheet metal.
The length of the moving pipe should be 2 times less than rail.
Moving the pipe is welded to the eyelet of the area. There is a hole, and tapped for screwing the handle from the grinder.
On one end of the main pipe welded to the blade strip, which will cling to the side of the tile. It should be broad enough surface area of contact with the tile, thus eliminating the split in podbivaniya.
Further sliding guide fits pipe, and the remaining region is welded close range area.
It will go on the front side egged on by tiles. The departure of the emphasis should be less catchy than the blades of at least 15 mm. Further to the glue or double sided tape to the abutment is glued rubber pad. It prevents scratching and rubbing of the front surface of the tile.
The resulting tool should be painted.
For the best slip and eliminating the metal rattle does not hurt to lubricate the guide tube. Homemade reverse hammer can be used not only when stacking the tiles, and laminate. It is convenient to work both on the floor and walls.
