In Response To: Replacing a kitchen sink (Christine Cummings)

NO! You can't cut a hole in a porcelain covered, cast iron sink. What you can do is buy a faucet that needs fewer holes than the one you have. You can get single hole faucets with pull out spouts that will leave two holes clear, one for a soap dispenser and one for the drinking faucet. Is the Eljer sink you bought the one that sells for $99? If it is, I don't feel it's the bargain you think it is. American Standard's "Americast" "Silhouette" sink goes for around $140 in white. It's a deeper, better shaped sink that comes standard with 4 holes and in which additional holes are easily drilled. You are only going to do this once, so consider all the "angles" before you start. Sometimes, a bargain isn't as much of a bargain as we think.
