They just installed my granite counters last night, and today I am trimming it out to finish. I am using this faucet;http://www.blancoamerica.com/inter/k...age/440557.pdf
I have never installed a faucet in granite, and am a little concerned. They give you 2 mounting kits, and a #17 reinforcement. So my question is, do I need that #17 part? (I would have to hog the plywood underneath out more), or is that for direct mounting to SS rim? How tight should I torque this deal? If it cracks, you may read about me on the news as postal.
