Hi I am looking to install some 3/4" x 4" maple flooring in a hallway that is about 3' by 10', the boards will be running along the 10' stretch so I am not sure how to nail it down, it seems like a nailer won't be of much good given the 3' width so asking if it is worth renting one or just hand nail the whole thing, and therefore what type of nails to use, as well as spacing of nails, boards will run across joists 16 on center but only going into 5/8ths OSB board.

I'd follow the hardwood flooring standards?

stick to plumbing. Standards do not tell you the distance the nailer covers between walls, geez!

Insulting the well meaning if unhelpful respondent is not a great way to get others to respond.
