Thanks, CX. I did use nailers on both sides of all joists. (as well as construction adhesive)

It was a damn lot of work. Only 9 joist bays and 3 blocks per bay, but it ended up being a 10 hour day before I was done. I got pretty good at it by the end of the day...

I have to say it worked out well based on how the floor feels (very noticeable difference), but it would have been so much easier with "normal" joists. What I ended up with seems like extreme overkill, but it's done and I'm happy.

I forgot to take a picture, but I will post one tomorrow.

In other news, I bought a Makita 9403 4" belt far I'm pretty impressed - definitely the best belt sander I have ever used. Pretty straightforward, no frills machine. Appears to be a workhorse.

Thanks again to all.
