Equipment Brands:

Belt Sanders

Belt sanders are an essential tool for any sanding project, particularly when it comes to hardwood flooring. These powerful machines are designed to remove the finish from the flooring and help to create a smooth, even surface. Often referred to as “big machines,” belt sanders play a crucial role in the overall appearance of the finished floor. These machines use big belts to sand wood fast and flat. To ensure optimal performance, it’s important to check that the wheels are clean, the drum is in good condition, and the power is reliable before using a belt sander. By following these simple steps, you can get the most out of your belt sander and achieve professional results.


Edgers are a vital tool for hardwood flooring installation projects, as they allow you to reach small, hard-to-access spaces, such as corners, along walls, and under toe kicks. The right edger can greatly improve the efficiency and quality of the job, saving time and reducing the workload for the craftsman. These edgers usually use 6″ and 7″ discs. There are many different styles of edgers available on the market, and different companies may choose to use different machines based on the specific needs of the job. No matter which style you choose, an edger can make a big difference in the success of your flooring project.

Planetary Sanders

Planetary sanders are a specialized tool that is used to flatten and prepare hardwood flooring projects for finishing. These sanders have been around for a while, but newer designs have revolutionized the market. Planetary sanders use multiple heads with sandpaper to evenly sand the floor, resulting in a smooth, clean surface. Many companies have begun to replace traditional buffers with planetary sanders due to their ease of use and superior performance. Many contractors have found that these sanders provide better results and are a valuable addition to their toolkit.

Buffers are versatile machines that have many different uses in wood flooring projects. They can be used for a range of applications, including final sanding passes for inter-coat abrasions, staining, cleaning, and more. Buffers have been a staple in wood flooring for years, and are known for their versatility and usefulness throughout the project – they use 16″ buffer sandpaper. In fact, buffers are often considered one of the most essential tools in wood flooring due to their wide range of applications and their usefulness at various stages of the project.


Nailers are a crucial tool for any hardwood flooring installation project. Rustic Wood Floor Supply offers a wide range of wood flooring nailers (staples and cleat fasteners), each of which is designed for specific applications. To make the nailing process less physically demanding, we recommend purchasing a nailer with rollers. Quality nail guns are built to last for many years with proper maintenance, but if something does happen to break, it can usually be easily repaired. Regardless of your specific needs, Rustic Wood Floor Supply has a nailer that is right for you.
