Anyplace that sells flooring, or make your own.

Welcome and what a question to start!

Hadn't thought about the need in awhile but think a real lumber yard would still sell or be able to order you such.

Whether you can find what you need milled in matching hardwood? I have run across solutions in supposedly non-squeak extruded nylon/plastic and aluminum and assume if you nail it or glue it it will not fail any more than wood inserts or actual tongues into grooves?

How much do you need? Hopefully you do not have too many groove to groove joints to work out?

Flooring guys will have better suggestions.

Thanks danger rodent.

Table saw could work. I sometimes forget the obvious is right in front of me. You should be able to rip pieces from scrap flooring. Rubber mallet and maybe polyurethane glue like Gorilla Glue? Good to go! Tongues where none were moments before.

How much of a t&g mismatch do you have though? Sure all nailed in opposing directions is in place? Patching grooves with inserts of whatever kind is what it is. It is never the same as milled wood from the same piece.
