Details
A recent kitchen renovation revealed a piece of tile that needs patching. I have spare tiles to work with and can supply a small Amount of concrete to fill the channel.

Other jobs: install 2 hooks in laundry, install velux blinds in skylight (height approx 2.5 meters, cut small hole in under couch box, trim down packers used to pack up stove from square to Circular. Help me level stove and push back correctly to wall (adjustable legs).

added: cut and install a filler piece between kitchen cabinet and wall and put grout in old tile patch

You will need electric tools to trim the packers (hole saw?) and to cut the small holes in the box. I think the tiling will take 1 hour and the other jobs are small (20 minutes allowed for each).

Will supply photos as soon as it's light.

Good luck with that nice fella Melinda. Hope it works out for you.
Hi Melinda, I have wet tile cutting gear, but those existing cuts have clearly been rushed since they're all chipped along the edge, so it could probably be done dry with a diamond blade. The curve can't be wet cut. The magic will be in the grouting to try to make it look as good as possible given the situation.
total rubbish
Which bit? Close up pic of dry cut on porcelain tile done 6 yrs ago -
when I was merely learning. People lacking talent shouldn't judge others.
Melinda, without a tile saw, it cant be done properly. You get what you pay for.

Hi.. I do have a proper wet tile cutter, I was just assuming that others do not. I would probably make a template and cut it here, as its too big to cart there for a small job
Hi michael, Ive just added another 2 small things to the list that I'd forgotten about. for the filler piece between cabinet and wall, I have the 2pac coated MDF piece, my carpenter didn't install it when he did the rest of the kitchen and the grout is as shown in the pictures just about to post
I was just about to accept your offer and then remembered the other jobs.
I've changed the pic. If you'd consider taking a chance with someone very honest and reliable that's desperately chasing great reviews, I'm still interested!
Hi Ian, happy to consider. are you confident you'll be able to patch the tile or do you need to see more pictures? Its a channel that needs to be levelled with a small amount of concrete and then the tiles cut to fit. The spares I have will work, but the cuts will be an odd shape.
Hi Melinda. Yes I'm confident that I can do it, and as long as you realise that it isn't going to look like freshly laid full size tiles, it's all good. I will be able to get it looking as good as anyone possibly can given what I've read in your other answers. I'd fill the gap with fast setting self leveling concrete. While it's reasonably expensive, it can be sealed and tiled within a couple of hours (and I happen to have some here at the moment). I still need an answer to the velux blind question too before committing.
Hi Melinda. Did you want the tiles removed then replaced with new tiles, or to just fill the space. I can do everything you want, just not sure when. Maybe an afternoon or eveing

Also we have people home sick this week so next week would be better I suspect.
Hi Melinda, I can be free late next week. Those tiles, its hard to make it look good if you just want to fill the hole. Best job is to replace the full tiles. Unless its covered up and never seen
HI Michael, yes I know it would be ideal to replace the tiles, but there's underfloor heating in the vicinity (not immediately where they are) and I actually don't have enough tiles to fully replace them. I know they won't look awesome, but I'm happy to live with it. Late next week is ideal. Let me know time and day that suits.
