I have a broken tile in the tiled sill below the front window, on our
house. As it's on a curve, i need to cut a new tile to shape.
I was thinking of buying an inexpensive angle grinder to do this job. could
anyone please recommend an inexpensive one?
Also the tiles were painted black at one time, and we would like to remove
this paint and restore the tiles to their original red colour. Would I be
able to easily grind off this paint with the angle grinder and if so what
kind of disc should i buy for this job? Thanks for any advice.
Don't grind the paint. You'll ruin the tiles.
Paint stripper will get the paint off the tiles, but you'll never get
the paint out of the grout. Buy the Dremel attachment for removing
grout, then put in new grout.
Nope, you'll damage the red surface doing it that way.
If the tiles are highly glazed, paint stripper should work, but you'll have to
regrout the tiles because the grout will have soaked up the black paint.
Even a wire brush will damage the red surface, but is what
you should use for that if you want to do it that way anyway.
