I agree, especially if it's not clear whether your boss wants you to do this on a continuing basis.

Then, because you will have compromised on some aspect of the tool - it's not as comfortable, or jams really often - karma will decree that you are stuck with it: it will never break or wear out, no matter how much you abuse it. That's how most guys end up with a 10-year old Ryobi angle grinder. But I digress.

Re: Best Pneumatic Flooring Nailer?

The Bostitch MIII stapler is my everyday gun for 3/4" oak, maple, and most other domestic species. I also have the red powernail flex for denser exotics and stranded bamboo, as well as the green powernail for regular bamboo and thinner engineered. You cant use the same gun for everything but if the majority of what youre going to start out doing is oak then Im voting for the big yellow blaster all the way.

Thanks for the advice guys, unfortunately my boss decided to sub it out because its cheaper and faster.

Oh well. When I do get a chance to install my first floor I'll know what to get, thanks to y'all.
