Two of each the narrow crown and the brad stapler. One set for me. One set for my wife. We use them all the time in our furniture repair and wood projects. They are the "Best Buy" for our needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very good product This is the second stapler I have bought, the first lasted over five years. This is a very good and reliable product which is easy to use in a work environment. I would give it higher value rating but the staples are quite expensive to purchase for this stapler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from another great bostitch air tool I added this model last week to my arsenal of other bostitch nailers. It was on clearance for $71.00 but had to buy the display model....haggled with them a bit and walk out paying $60.00 for it. I've never had a problem with any of my nailers some have over 10k brads fired through them not a single problem. I love their oiless engines - no more oil stains around the nail hole! To the reviewer that said you have to use bostitch staples that is simply not true. I shoot portal cable staples currently because thats all HD had in stock. I even fired 30 or so HF horrible china staples with no problem. I didn't realize how big of a deal it was with no 'no fire when emoty' feature until i ran out of staples....that is a really nice feature.

Can I use this to install 3/8" engineered hardwood floors?

Asked by: DIYGIY
You can, but make sure you're not going too deep and deep enough in the tongue and not exposing the underside of the groove with any part of the staple. It's really efficient and cheaper just to go to HD rental and get a flooring stapler for the day or two unless you have other projects. Don't forget to use a soft headed mallet.
