    I got a new hardwood nailer.
    These are supposed to be the cream of the crop.
    It’s a combo 18 gauge stapler/ cleat nailer.
    Can’t wait to try it out!

    Looks neat Don. I wish I had your energy level. Just watching what you do tires me out. :oops:
    That reminds me. It's bedtime....:)

    Yup, I've wanted one but don't do much nail down here. The 18ga cleat great for extra hard wood preventing splits.

    We’re in the middle of a 2500 sq. ft. engineered job. Best new tool I have bought in a long time!

    Looks a lot like work. I can remember doing 30-40 sheets of underlayment with a nailer using a mallet. But I also have done 20 sheets with a hammer and ringshank nails.

    With this nailer it just takes the slightest tap with the mallet.
    You can almost run across the floor and nail.


    I still have a Duo-fast strike tacker for underlayment.

    Yeah its been out for a few years. Wish I had more nail jobs. Meanwhile I have 3 different staplers sitting around doing nothing.
