I used this nailer on Cali Bamboo, solid T&G. Worked perfectly. Cali Bamboo has a comprable high hardness rating.

Does this nailer work on 1/2" bamboo?

Asked by quietsideshop June 18, 2017

Answers

Absolutely. Keep the compressor around 80-90 psi for best results. 100 psi tended to split the tongue, 70 psi would leave it a little short and require a nail set to finish the job.

The CFM is a function of the rate of fire. I can't imagine being able to position the nailer and hand-strike it at a rate that would require more that 2.2 CFM...

Asked by WVUGoMounties January 23, 2017
1
Answer

This nailer is specific to "exotic" flooring because it shoots an 18ga L-cleat, which is thinner than traditional 16ga cleats or 15.5ga flooring staples, which would typically split and damage more dense, exotic wood floors, and the same with softer engineered floors. 16ga cleats and 15.5ga flooring staples are designed for traditional (medium density) hardwoods like oak, walnut and maple, but will typically damage the tongue of the flooring on dense exotic floors and soft engineered floors.

Works great. Keep it oiled, and it fires every time. Jams are easy to clear, and won't misfire if sufficient pressure is applied to the hammer strike.

After second day of use there was already an air leak in the gun. Haven’t had time to fix, but definitely disappointed. It’s set to the proper air pressure and has adequate oil.

The flooring nailer jammed after ever eight-ten strikes; I read the troubleshooting in the manual that came with, it and it mentioned alignment. As I was removing the hex bolt to align correctly, it the bolt broke…strange for that to happen maybe too much lock-tight. I had to tap-out the bolt and use an aftermarket. Please send a replacement part, thank you.

Works like a champ! We are almost finished laying around 1500 sq ft of 3/4” solid oak and it has done fantastic. Ampro has the best price on cleats for this. Gun has only jammed if hit too soft or double shot, but was an easy fix. Best price for a new gun this size on the market!
