2. Draw on the ground, at the square, the base of the low walls to be raised. Their outer spacing corresponds to the exact width of the workshop sink.

Connection of the sink faucet

Lightly bend copper pipes

11. Braze the copper pipes of the faucet (this can be done at the bench). Slightly bend the copper pipes: they will be joined by a collar that will allow their attachment to the wall.

Thread the sheath into the pipes

12. Thread the plastic sheath into the hoses. This sheath will allow sealing without the cement having a corrosive action on the copper. The duct will also allow some expansion of the hot water piping.

Position the taps

13. Thread the assembly into the back of the shop sink and position so that both faucets are aligned horizontally.

Seal the piping of faucets

14. Seal with mortar after having protected the chrome with a plastic bag. Finally, connect the drain hoses to the bottom of the shop sink; made of plastic, they are very easy to install without tools.
