A: That is what I used it to do! Great piece of equipment!
A: Yep! No problem at all.
A: The large flooring nailer uses 15.5ga Flooring staples, 1-1/2" or 2" long (also uses 16ga T or L cleats). The 4in1 Mini Flooring nailer uses 18ga Narrow Crown staples ranging 1/2" to 1-5/8" long. Any brand meeting these requirements will work, or Freeman has them available online as well.
A: The 3-in-1 uses 15.5-gauge / 1-1/2 in. to 2 in. flooring staples and 16-gauge / 1-1/2 to 2 in. T and L cleats. The 4-in-1 uses 5/8 to 1-5/8 in. 18-gauge brad nails or narrow crown staples.
A: 16 gauge
A: No you should use screws, the stapler is for flooring and the staples go in at an angle not to hold weight.
A: I would imagine, with a max nail length of 1-5/8", this will not work for the furring strips project you've described. Most likely a longer finish nail, like a 16ga 2-1/2" or a longer medium crown construction staple.
A: The Freeman Professional Flooring Kit can be used with solid wood flooring.
A: In general - yes. This one - not with nails for sure, maybe - with staples, if it fits your needs.
A: This particular large floor nailer can not use nails at all (getting jammed), maybe staples only. Decide which type of fasteners do you want to go with - staples or nails (cleats).
A: The flooring nailer CAN be used on prefinished flooring, but it is NOT recommended. You run the risk, if the nailer slips off the edge of the flooring while being struck by the mallet on accident, it will scratch the prefinished surface. I would recommend one of the Freeman nailers that comes SAFE for prefinished flooring, equipped with a non marring base like the PDX50C... http://www.homedepot.com/p/Freeman-3-in-1-Flooring-Air-Nailer-and-Stapler-with-Fiberglass-Mallet-PDX50C/202072452
A: Yes the nails or staples go in the tongue, just be careful no to mar the floor if the bottom plate is rough cover it with painters tape.
