continuing subfloor question


Afternoon,
I read the responses to my previous post( thank you). I screwed down the subfloor along the joists where the sheets of the subfloor meet(osb). Some of these areas are still high spots. My question now is do I remove the screws I added and remove the original common nails, beltsand and then screw the boards back down? I'm concerned that a cats paw will tear up the osb pretty badly.
Secondly I'm reading different opinions about osb in general. When everything is said and done is it ok to nail down a 3/4" solid hardwood floor to 3/4" osb?
Thanks, Barry

continuing subfloor question


I am going to come across the same thing redoing my kitchen floor in a week or so. I am just going to set the nails near the surface deeper and back out the screws and then use a belt sander or planer to smooth out the couple of transitions I have.
