I have a floor stapler I got a while back which does 3/4 and 5/16 flooring.
It looks like I will be doing a 3/8 floor. Will this work on a 3/8 floor?
It's just a 1/16 difference. I don't see an adapter for 3/8. Thought someone
here may have some experience at this. I see they have staplers for 3/8 but
since I have this one and only do occasional stuff thought I would ask for
It's not so much the overall thickness, but the offset from the tongue to the
upper surface of the flooring. The nose where the staple or nail comes out
should just clear the tongue when the stapler is in position on the board. On
most models you can change plastic bottom plates and/or add shims to get it
correct. Shims would be easy to make if you can't find them to buy.
