Hello. I will be stapling 3/8 Engineered into Plywood subfloor and the wood manufacturer calls for 1 1/4 narrow crown staples. I bought the Freeman PFBC940 (https://www.amazon.com/Freeman-PFBC940- ... B004FP99GC) for the project.

The question I have is when I go to Lowes or Home Depot I see the staples with that size (1 1/4) but it says 'Finish Staples'. Is that the same staples used for Engineered floors? Just want to make sure I buy the correct staples.

Thank you.

There are two different guages of staples. 20 ga. and 18 ga., your gun should have the guage that is correct on the label somewhere. I have used 20 ga. on 3/8ths inch thick engineered without a problem. Staples really hold!

The Staple Gun says it uses 18 gauge 1/4 crown.

So is this the correct staples https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hitachi-1-1-4- ... s/50422598 although it says 'Finishing Staples'?

Thanks a lot.
