This Freeman one worked really good for me putting down 3/4 red oak. It's pretty cheap and I found very few bad reviews online.

pneumatic floor nailer/stapler


I decided to go to the neighborhood mill and I am have the decking duplicated to it's original true 1X4 X...s. My question is :
will the floor nailers at Lowes/HD that state 1/2" -3/4" cleats handle the 1" boards, or do I need to find a 1" if they make it (I have not found one stating 1" as of yet)
Just found a $500.00 nailer that is made for 1" wood, is this what I should expect?
and what gauge T/L cleats, staples would you recommend. The wood is YSP
Thanks in advance

Don't laugh...... I bouht a HF like Mike for a single job many years ago... think I paid $79. (Probably twice that now).

I fugured it would give me trouble and I'd just return it after the job if it did. NO TROUBLE.

I'll bet it has 9-10 K feet on it now.... still doing fine/good.

That's not alot of feet for a production flooring operation... but at it's cost, you can consider it a consumable.

It's the base/shoe that is important relative to your flooring thickness.... I think mine only has a 1/2 and 3/4 capacity shoes.

You may want to go with a manufacturer that has different/all shoe options. (I don't know what happens if you don't have the right shoe... I'd guess you break/split toungs.)

I only shoot staples with it. I'd have to go look, I think they are 15-16 guage... can't remember.

They handle oak/maple/hemlock/pine fine. I think they will do fine with YSP', which is probably similar to SYP....

Best
