I will soon be installing new hardwood in my kitchen. I pan on stripping back to the subfloor this weekend. Can anybody share last minute tips and I'm also trying to figure out what tools I need.
flooring 3/4" Bolivian Rosewood... on top of 1950 diagonal slat sub-floor.
Nailing: I have a coworker who used just a good old claw hammer, But I'm think of renting either a manual or air nailer. I have the most basic of home air compressors will a air nailer even work? (or should I buy I've found a number of tools you can buy a cheap one for about the same cost as a short rental, wet saw, wallpaper steamer... Both worked great for my little job)
Saw: I bought a used compond miter saw. What kind of blade should I get?
I've done a little bit of homework but Can anybody recommend a really good how to site? I'm fairly handy and I have a general idea of what I'm getting into but I'd prefer to do things right instead of winging it. (I've just skimmed through TOH's how to)
Any last minute tips
