Sample text

Most sinks come with a template that helps you accurately mark the outline of the hole you'll need to cut in the countertop. If you don't have a template, take a few minutes to make one. Put a large piece of cardboard on the floor and set the sink on it upside down. ) Use a felt-tipped pen to trace the sink's outline onto the cardboard. Remove the sink; then measure and draw another line 3/4 inch inside the one you just drew, all the way around. Cut along both lines to create the template for your sink.

Lift out the cutout piece, using the corner holes for finger holds, and then use a rasp to remove splinters and excessive roughness from the opening. If you are installing a cast-iron sink that has corner gussets, you may have to round the edge of the cutout slightly. Install the sink. Put your fingers through the sink's drain and fixture holes, and carefully lift it and place it in its hole. ) If you're worried about scratching the countertop, lay scrap sticks along the sides of the opening, put the sink in place, and then remove the sticks one at a time.

Then (and this is specific to a self-rimming stainless steel sink) use a long screwdriver to fasten the retaining clips that secure the sink to the underside of the countertop. At the back, where space is tight, you may need a particularly long screwdriver. You may want to glue or screw scrapwood bracing strips to th e underside of the countertop so that they contact the bowl on at least two sides. This will ensure that the sink doesn't move. Connect the faucet and drain, and you're good to go.
