Need a hardwood floor refinished

I've got an origional hardwood floor in my house built in 1956. The planks are 3" and vary in length. I'd like it refinished. Anybody know anyone that could do such a job?

does the floor need to be installed or just portions of it replaced? I'm not undertanding the planks being 3". Are you talking about the length? I'm assuming you meant 3 feet. Anyhow, if the floor is installed and it just needs to be refinished, let me know. I have done 2 hardwood refinishing jobs. All of the supplies can be rented/bought at your local home depot. I think rental/supplies ran me about $300 to do 2 rooms that were about 12x16.

The floor is installed and is origional from 1956. The planks are 3" wide, and vary in length from 6 to 10 feet. I'm thinking about going with a clear or really light finish because the current color makes the room look tiny.

Heck, if the floors are already installed the job should be cake. If there was any type of carpet or linolium (sp?) that used an adhesive to keep it "down" you will need to buy some hardwood stripper (this gets rid of the glue, otherwise it will "gum" up the belt sander pads/orbital pads when heat is generated...this is also needed if the floor is finished already and the varnish needs to be taken up), rent the belt sander and literally shave 1/16-1/8 of inch off the top of the wood (any idea how thick the planks are?), vacuum the area really well and then take a tacky rag to pick up minute wood shavings that the vacuum didn't pick up. You can then choose the stain (if you choose to stain) color of your choice and apply to the floor. After the recommended drying time you can apply the varnish/sealer. I have pictures of the last job I did, but they are at home (and they aren't digital) and I can scan them and post 'em up tomorrow if you'd like. How soon are you looking to do this? I would be willing to do the job, for a small fee of course or I would be glad to help you get the supplies/tools needed to do it yourself. PM me if you are interested and maybe we could hook up sometime this weekend to look at the job.
