thinset on thinset?
 
Tile cutter malfunctioned while I was tiling my bath. I also ran a few pieces short thanks to the cutter malfuntioning. To finish this project, do I have to completely clean the excess thinset left from the first attempt down to the backer board?

No, of course not. You removed the thinset while still fresh right?

Yes, Remove the thinset.

Remove the thinset??? You're kidding! There isn't a build up of thinset on the floor, just a skim coat from the remains after he removed it once he realized he had no more tiles.

If there was a build up, (the normal amount) I don't think he would be asking the question, do you? It's the same as treating the seams of the CBU.

Makes sense to me, although I did the seams as I did the tile. There is a little buildup on the edges of a few of the tiles. I will chip and scrape them down then vacuum the dust. The thinset has been down a few days , and I was concerned the new thinset might not adhere to it.
