      • Essential tool for hardwood flooring

      This tool is essential for installing hardwood flooring. Works very well and requires about 2 swings per nail. The upgraded model might be better for facenailing near walls, however if you have a nail gun with an air tank this will work just as well. I prefer this model rather than the model that attaches to an air tank becuase I have found that the action of banging the nailer head helps draw in boards that are slightly warped side to side. The only downside to this product is simply that you have to swing the hammer twice per nail, but I opted for this model for the reason that I feel like it helped draw in boards better than the air model. If you are installing wood - which is a pretty easy DIY project - get this tool, a chop saw and a table saw.
