    Hi

    I installed some 60 x 60 tiles and am now moving onto installing some smaller tiles (30x30).

    What adhesive trowel do you recommend I use to install these smaller tiles ?

    The tiles are going on the floor.

    Cheers

    Larger the tile larger the notch.:)

    10mm notch, square or U.

    Wall tiles I presume, floor tiles you could go 12mm notch.

    6mm notch = 6-8inch tile

    8mm notch = 8-10inch tile

    10mm notch = 10 -12inch tile

    12mm notch would be used for any tile over 12 inches.

    As Kiab says.

    Other things to consider are the general 'flatness' of the surface you're tiling. If you have a poor surface, then up the notch size and check you're getting full coverage on the back the tile. Remember to back butter as well.
