Can I sand/cut/drill larger sink holes in my china pedistal sink? I just purchases a mini-wide spread faucet and my faucet holes are about 1/16-1/8" too close. Can I sand/cut them the make my faucet fit without breaking my sink?
It is possible, but very difficult and most likely you will break a sink. I use to install jets in cast iron whirlpool tubs and the china is cut with a special bit. But in many of the cases, a tub was chipped and damaged. With china, its so brittle the chattering that comes from the grinding, sometimes causes fractures in the sink and it ends up shattering. I would suggest either buying a sink designed for the widespread faucet, or buying a faucet designed for the sink. Retrofitting is always a difficult prospect.
