Choosing the right drill can be a tedious process. With so many drills and drivers to choose from, and with each application requiring an entirely new set of tools, the options can seem endless and daunting. Tradesmen are always in a struggle against bits and bit changes, against drills that merely spin and lack the ability to drive; they fight with bits, batteries, and cords batteling their standard drills to just drive that screw better. But amidst war cries and unending rows of drills and drivers, there lies the drill/driver. And with that a calm decends over craftsmen everywhere knowing that this tool will simplify their lives.
