comment Do I have to remove the old thinset before installing new tile?
@AngelaL. I don't know if it would work for linoleum glue... the reason it works so well fro thinset is because the granules break and fling off. I imagine that linoleum glue might just melt and bind to the brush? Try it and see! These brushes are pretty cheap. WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES AND A MASK!

comment How can I attach a 1/8" strip of steel to MDF so that it stays secure forever for eternity?
@oscilatingcretin lining up your channels may be more of a challenge than you bargained for. At this stage you might as well have square stock welded into a reinforced and rigid shape.

I got mine at Lowes. Consider that you're to compare the rigidity of the steel square stock to the equivalent shape in MDF. You can also get aluminum square stock from many providers online.
