What's a 2x4 nailer? Sorry for the newbie question.

Itís a 2x4 board installed between the joists to provide support for the edge of the plywood or T&G subfloor. Otherwise the edge of the floor will sag if something heavy like a bed post or something is set on it. Nominally the Tong and Grove support itself but in this case there isnít a T&G because itís been cut off

And mission accomplished!

Thanks for all the advice. Not sure if I followed it exactly, but I took it into account and I've got a solid floor now with no squeaks... Except one corner of old wood by the door. Where it meets the new, it gives a little and rubs against. Shot some liquid nail in there, so I guess I will see how it turns out once that sets. Nothing else along that seam squeaks, and I didn't think of putting in any support in that area as its right between two joists.

Here's the hole all scraped and cleaned out:

Here's the support blocks I put in because this end wasn't ended on a joist due to the wall, so hopefully this will prevent sagging over time. One end of the block is on a piece of wood above the ceiling below, other end is glued and screwed into the joist.

And here it is finished. I'm happy with how it turned out. It helped a lot by cutting the insert into the right dimension, laying it in the hole, then tracing a line on the old floor where I needed to straighten out the circular saw cut to get it to fit. Went really easy.

Maybe not the biggest or hardest project, but not having used a circular saw before a couple weeks ago, I feel real good about getting it done. Thanks for the help, and maybe a little bit of extra confidence too that I could do it. :-)
