This was the unit I used to demo at trade-shows when i was the Canadian distributor for GREX USA. It is in almost NEW condition, as the photo of the sole plate shows. The advantage of the hardwood flooring stapler is that, when shooting exotic hardwoods like Jatoba, a staple makes 2 small holes in the side of the hardwood rather that one huge hole like a nail does, thereby considerably reducing the chance of splitting the dense equatorial hardwood.I have checked the tool inside and out and all is perfect.
