Swedish term or phrase: nivåskiva
Börja inte installera väggplattor genom att vila den mot badkaret eller duschen om du gör en väggplattainstallation för badrummet. Placera en nivåskiva mot ytan och börja installera kakel på brädet. Kakelarna ska pressas fast i limet och vrida dem för att bädda in dem i limet. Glida inte plattorna i läge. När du har först installerat din första rad, ta bort planen.

neutral  SafeTex: Hello Deanne. I'm dubious about the "board" part. Skiva can mean many things and tile spacers look nothing like boards. What do you think?

  -> Revisiting this now...I when with the hits that were closest in description to the context given. But yeah, this meant ignoring all the 'tile spacer' references which describe something entirely different.
