Nails

Handle

Another nice feature offered by the Bostitch MIIIFN flooring nailer is its long handle. This long handle keeps you from having to bend over while working. If you don't want the nailer with a long handle, you have the option of getting the short handle.

Base Plates

The Bostitch MIIIFN flooring nailer is packaged with two base plates. One is designed for use with 1/2-inch hardwood planks, while the other is for 3/4-inch planks. These base plates are designed to provide stability while using the tool.

You are also provided with a floorboard adapter when you purchase the Bostitch MIIIFN. This adapter is useful when installing pre-finished flooring, since it won't scratch or cause other types of damage to it.

Activation

The Bostitch MIIIFN flooring nailer is activated with a graphite mallet. You simple have to strike the tool with this rubber-tipped mallet to get it to drive a clean nail.

The Bostitch MIIIFN flooring nailer will help you install hardwood flooring much faster than manual methods. It has a long handle so you can use the tool comfortably for long periods of time.
