Title: How critical is nail groove in T&G flooring
Post by: Brad_S. on January 08, 2019, 07:33:18 PM
 I need to do a small run of 500 ft.≤ of tongue and groove flooring in White Oak.  I already have tongue and groove cutters but they donít have the spur to cut a groove for flooring nails. I hate to spend the extra money for a one time use set of knives. Is that groove critical? I donít want to run flooring and find out I canít get a good tight fit because the nail head is in the way.

My knives create a square tongue, no spot for the nail head, and any I have installed the head ends up counter sunk anyway.
