Although setting tile can be fun, we sometimes get frustrated trying to space ’em just right. Experienced setters can rely on a practiced eye or thousands of those little spacers. For the rest of us, Prazi manufactures the Set & Go.
You can adjust the Set & Go to work with tiles measuring 8″ to 16″. The Set & Go holds four spacers in precise position, so you just set tiles on all four sides of it, then move the Set & Go to the next row, and continue setting tiles — no small spacers to set and pick up.
You can make different patterns with four different types of spacers: X-spacers for doing grid patterns, T-spacers for staggered or subway layouts, I-spacers for octagonal tiles, and L-spacers for starting in corners. Prazi makes spacers for either 1/4″ or 1/8″ spacing — they include the 1/4″ versions of the X, L, T, and I spacers with the Set & Go.
Pick up the Set & Go for $31 at Amazon. They also sell a set of four 1/8″ spacers for about $6.
