      Comments about 18-Gauge Oil-Free Engineered Flooring Stapler:

      I purchased this tool to use for installing 9/16" engineered hardwood floors. My past experience with Bostitch staplers has been good. I have 4 other Bostitch hardwood staplers. This gun has been to the repair shop two times and has to go back. (shot 5 boxes of staples) The safety / lockout system continues lock up. So very disappointed because it fails right in the middle of a job with a customers house tore up. Not sure if I received a lemon or if this is typical for this tool. Called Bostitch cust. service line and just told to take to service center. Save your money and buy a different brand of stapler if you are going to use this as a pro.

            Used this product right out of the box, little adjustment on the footplate. No malfunctions. The occasional dislodging of a rubber tip keeps it from scoring 5 stars.

              Q:

              I'm having issues with one leg of staple penetrating and other leg curling up. Is this a gun issue or something else? I'm putting down bamboo engineered 3/8".

                A:

                This stapler should not have any problems driving a 3/8 staple into bamboo, the unit may be defective or your psi might need to be adjusted.

                The stapler has adjustable knobs to allow tool-free adjustment from 5/16" - 7/16" for solid hardwood and 1/2" - 5/8" for engineered hardwood and engineered bamboo.
