What the heck does a Janka hardness test have to do with 3/4" oak flooring?

Google Janka.

No offense to the original poster, see what you started?
What were you thinking? :D

These aren't 2" thick planks DUH and :eek: there could even be a :eek: knot or a :eek:pin knot, as he said this wasn't the most expensive grade of oak floor.

Pig Slop!

Questioning the fact set presented by the orginal poster which he repeated several times isn't opinion or inquiry you were disputing what he presented. TWISTED you are Jack.

You should! ROAR!!! it has NOTHING to do with oak flooring 3/4". A Janka hardness test is done on a clear SOLID 2x4x6 or a 2x2x6" block of wood! your metal ball would compress with far less force into 3/4" milled flooring.

Let's see, the Janka hardness scale is a generally accepted standard for the rating of the hardness of wood , 3/4" oak flooring is made of oak(red or white), oak (red or white) is a wood . Only you would see no relevance .By the way the Janka rateing on a knot would generally be even higher. It amazes me that you, who constantly likes to quote standards, would choose to ignore an industry standard.

What fact set by the original poster, which he repeated several times, did I question?

At least I assume you meant original not orginal.:D

ROAR! your b.s. 300 lb calculations faulty AND your statements about H and requiring force equal to a Janka hardness scale average for 2"x2"x6" block of solid oak were total B.S. and had NOTHING to do with the force required to indent an oak plank or strip floor only 3/4" (or less) thick, YOU OBVIOUSLY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE STANDARD, HOW IT IS APPLIED, WHAT THE TEST RESULTS MEAN, OR HOW THE INFORMATION IS USED. THAT IS THE POINT DUH.

you are saying his post is b.s. But based on what do you say this? I personally don't have knowledge in this area, but if you are disputing him you need to provide proof. your word just isn't enough because you have never given proof of experience in any area what so ever.

My statements about H and requiring force? What does that mean in English?

Oh, and Blue why didn't you answer my question "What fact set by the original poster, which he repeated several times, did I question?" ?

Re: My Oak Floors Keep Denting!

I have answered your stupid question several times. DUH.

that you don't know what H is just further proves you have NO IDEA what those Janka numbers are, what they mean, what they represent, what the standand is, the standard tests are, what it involves, and that you don't know a thing about what you were talking about, since your use of that information was flawed, incorrect, useless, and inappropriate to use those numbers in the manner you did and that your entire post about the Janka hardness values for wood an how you applied them an your theories as to how to apply that and come up with 300 pounds to dispute what I had posted, your crap post was TOTALLY BOGUS.

I don't have to prove a negative it is up to YOU to prove your rant. You don't know what H is but you reference janka hardness....TOO FUNNY.
