Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well on bamboo This shoe is the correct size for bamboo floors measuring 5/8 inch because they don't actually measure 5/8 inch. I don't know why they sell the floor as 5/8 inch because the actual size is metric. After figuring this out and purchasing this shoe, the nailer worked much better. If you are doing bamboo floor, purchase this. February 21, 2008
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bamboo shoe I used this shoe for putting about 100 sf of bamboo flooring down. It works fine. It's expensive for what you get. In retrospect I should have just used a finish nailer to shoot the through the tounge and saved fifty bucks. But who knows, I may do a significant amount of bamboo in the future, I doubt it though.
