The flooring is it engineered or solid? Specific engineered can be nailed with this gun. Using hte white plate that came in the bag, Its a thicker plate than the gun, and a BOSTITCH 108771, metal shim that installs inside the gun. This will allow 5/8" thick, Owens, Aswaha bay, etc 5/8" thick, with a heavy wearlayer to be installed with this nailer. Any thinner wear layer will become a problem

The base plate may be shimmed, but that unit was designed for 1/2" and 3/4" however, the Bostitch MFN201 Manual Flooring Cleat Nailer Kit will install 1/2"- 5/8" & 3/4"

The nail sets to deep is there an adjustment or is the bumper worn out


Hi dfreerugs,

Welcome to fixya!

Where do you have the pressure set at on your compressor? The range for this nailer is 70 to 90psi. Try lowering the pressure until the nails drive to the depth you want.

If the gun is well-used and lowering the pressure doesn't do it, you might need a new pressure regulator in the gun.

You can download a user manual at Amazon.com at this address: http://www.amazon.com/Bostitch-MIIIFN-2-Inch-Pneumatic-Flooring/dp/B0000302TH

Scroll down to the "Product details" section and click on "Product manual".

Good luck.

I rented a Bostitch Floor Nailer from Home Depot, and the nails wont set into the maple flooring. Iv used three different compressors(all set to 90psi) and 4 different Bostitch Nail Guns. Im going out of...


Ive had the same problem where it was putting divits you could see from the staples, we ended up changing out the flooring completely. Only thing besides trying diff psi's to get it perfect and different length staples/different heads on staples(nails) , maybe try staple gun. Keep trying every woods different, odd that it started half way through job.. odd.

What is the correct way to place the nails into the gun? This gun uses both cleats and staples. I am using cleats but it does not seem to be working. I may be putting the cleats in wrong.


If you have a Bostitch MIII FN it is only for cleats. Bostitch doesn't make a universal nailer that takes staples and cleats. The MIIIFN is the "floor nailer" and the Model MIIIFS is the "floor stapler"
Maybe check exactly what model you have and ensure you are not trying to put cleats into a stapler.

Can i use 1 and 1/2 inch nails to nail 3/4 inch hardwood.


The only time you would use 1 1/2" nails for 3/4" wood is if the flooring is being place on plywood over concrete.

Using the BOstitch flooring nailer, good air pressure and using cleats. but when i tap with hammer noting happens. the nailer goes off as if it had gone off but no nail was driven.


1. check to make sure the magazine does not contain a jam.
2. check to make sure the driver retracts fully to allow the cleat to advance
3. Be sure to have at least 90psi and to hit the head hard enough to fully fire the nailer.
