In response to Re: SHOWER FIXTURE ,NO SEATS?
: : hey lonnie, i got a seat grinder, is good quality proffesional tool

i just dont like removeing metal from old stiuff

and it also seems when you flaten out the seat the gaskets wear faster, atleast it seems that way

anyway i got appoipment late in the week at the ladys house and with your support now plan to lightly reface the seat(hot i think) with my tool, if i remember corectly when i replaced the washeers last time, was a fairly large seat area, probally require my largest seat grind wheel

i had attempted to remove seats when i was observing what looked like build in seat, i never seen non-removable seats before, i gonna try sticking some big allen wrench in there and see if i can get ahold of the old seat and remove

thanks for the reply

: You can grind the seats in place with a set of seat grinders. The grinder handle has a triangle slip shaft which keeps the grinder centered so that you grind the seat flat. There are different size grinder wheels for different valve bodies.
: About $20 to $25.LonnythePlumber
