Q:Is this strong enough to drive into a old oak sub floor under the new flooring?

Answer This Question

A:  I'm not sure. It surely didn't drive the staples into the hardwood oak flooring we laid down. Had to pull almost every single one. Not work the money whatsoever

by|Oct 15, 2021

    A:  Yes it should be. I used it to staple 1/2" engineered hardwood into an oak sub floor, and didn't have any issues. Just make sure you maintain the desired air pressure (around 100psi). The only time I had issues was when the compressor was down to 60-70psi without me noticing.

    A:  It is an 18 gauge nailer. The gun itself is powerful enough to drive into oak but you will need to experiment a little to make sure the nails will go in without buckling. 18 gauge nails tend to wad-up or deflect when they hit something really hard. Depending on the flooring you are installing, you might want to find something that uses cleats instead of staples, or something that uses 15 gauge nails.

    Q:What nailer wood recommend using for acacia hardwood flooring
    by|Dec 27, 2019
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Acacia is a very hard wood. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations, but I think you will need a floor nailer that uses cleats, especially if it is 1/2 inch or more. I have installed brazilian cherry, which is a little harder than Acacia, and used a full sized flooring nailer and cleats. I had to pre-drill the perimeter nail holes because the 15 gauge finish nailer I used would sometimes split the wood otherwise.

    by|Jan 12, 2021

    A:  The mini flooring nailer is just what the description says it is. It works best with 1/2 inch or less thickness wood. I prefer using it with engineered hardwood flooring. If you are putting down 3/4 inch flooring I would recommend using something like the Husky Pneumatic 3-in-1 15.5 and 16 Gauge 2 in. Flooring Nailer and Stapler with Quick Jam Release (Internet #205665226 Model # HDUFL50 Store SKU #1001186246). I hope this helps.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Joseph, I suggest you check with the manufacture of the flooring material.

      by|Oct 31, 2019

      A:  Like all installations, do a test with a scrap sample. Adjust staple depth etc. Many of the engineered floors are “floating” and the planks interlock. These don’t require stapling every course. I stapled every 7th course. A good foil/foam underlayment is highly recommended.

      by|Nov 1, 2019

        A:  Yes it will work with 9/16" material. Turn up the air pressure to 100-120psi because bamboo flooring is very hard.

        by|Nov 1, 2019

          A:  The only issue I’ve have using it on bamboo was. The gun would shoot hard enough to chip the coating of the surface of the bamboo. I don’t think it was the fault of the gun. Bamboo is a hard flooring and it worked well with holding it down. I think it was the coating on the bamboo that was the problem.

          by|Nov 2, 2019

            A:  This is a nice little flooring nailer, light weight....I believe you will be fine just make sure you use the staples for it. I think staples and shoot one every 6-8 inches and you’ll be fine. I laid 2200 square foot of engineered hardwood over top of a layer plywood I placed over the subfloor. Used this gun for both.

            by|Nov 1, 2019

              A:  i own this product and did about 750SF of engineered floor with it at my home. Also helped my nephew install 1200 SF of the same engineered wood floor. Tool works great, keep it lubricated and make sure to use the proper staples.

                Used this nailer to install 400 sq ft of engineered hardwood flooring, with 4"-6" spacing between staples. After a couple thousand staples, not once did the nailer jam or fail to sink the staples adequately. Light and easy to use. Looking forward to many more projects with this tool!

                  I am a remodeling contractor and own several full sized flooring nailers and many nail guns but a recent job called for engineered flooring and a staple down application. There are a couple of things about this gun that prevent me from recommending it. First, the adjustment process is overly complicated. The edge/tongue adjustment and the foot adjustment are both adjusted using the same two thumbscrews on either side of the plate. Theoretically, this should be fine but when you go to adjust the foot after adjusting the tongue, everything moves again. It is not as simple as setting it on a board on the floor, loosening everything and then retightening it when it all drops to the correct height. You have to fiddle and practice....a lot! In my case, when I did get all of the height correct, the nails failed to drive into the shoulder correctly and ended up a little ways out on the tongue. After spending another 20 minutes adjusting and testing, I finally got the nail to land in the top of the tongue in the shoulder where it should.....as long as the feeler gauge didn’t get in the way.... issue number three: unlike other staplers, the feeler is a single bar similar in shape to a jigsaw blade. Theoretically, it should fit in the shoulder between the tongue and the top of the piece of floor you are stapling....theoretically. In practice it is pretty hard to get this little sword into that groove unless you are moving very slowly. It is also impossible to see unless you are standing over it in a very specific location. Err hard to do. I thought I had this figured out by just sliding the gun along the board to bang, bang, bang staples...but I was wrong. This brings us to the fourth and most troubling aspect of this stapler. The plate design is made of a piece of steel surrounded on either side by two very hard pieces of plastic. For whatever reason, if you slide the gun along the edge of the board rather than pull it away, this hard plastic/steel/hard plastic arrangement acts like a hand planer and scrapes the edge of any un-eased edge floor you install. I didn’t notice his right away and I had to go fix a bunch of edge-stripped boards already installed on the floor. So, this gun is difficult to adjust for height, is very hard to align properly on a board even when the height is correct because of the single point feeler, and it scrapes the edge of any un-eased edge that you run it along. It really is a pretty awful flooring stapler.

                    Mighty MIni Flooring Nailer
                    The Husky Pneumatic 18-gauge 4-in-1 mini flooring nailer is impressive! It comes with the floor nose installed, but it also comes with a regular nose to use as a standard nailer. I needed to renail some siding and it was very easy to change out the heads. It drives the nails in so good and does not leave heads sticking out like my previous nailer. It has an easy exhaust adjustment so you can direct the discharge air away from you. The fasteners load very easily and the trigger is smooth and east to operate. It will handle 18 gauge brad nails form 5/8" to 1-5/8" and staples from 1/2" to 1-5/8". I'd definitely recommend it for the professional or do it yourselfer.

                    Husky Brand Brad Nailer NAILED IT 1st time!
                    Wow, nice & light. Easy to maneuver around & doesn't tire ones arms when using for prolonged time or over head. I used this to trim out some drywall in my workshop I am setting up. The brads were easy to load & adjust for depth. I used Dewalt Brand Brads & Staples, they worked out beautifully! Another Great idea was to incorporate the narrow head stapler with the brad nailer, 4 For 1 Quadruple The Bang for the Buck! Changing Heads from floor tool to stapler or brad nailer was quick & easy & all parts are included.This tools is a flooring nailer, flooring stapler, brad nailer and narrow crown stapler! This tool feels sturdy & looks to be quality made. Glad I got it added to my arsenal of tools. Helps get the jobs done quickly.

                      Did not function at all as a flooring stapler. Extremely frustrating. Took me a day to staple just a couple rows of flooring. Returned it and got new one.
