A few of the products in the “Phillips Collection” are mentioned here. To learn more about all of Scott’s choices, watch his video online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yr98g277Aek.
•PULY 12V MAX POWER Right Angle Drill & Multi-Tool Combo – Users can quickly switch heads on this versatile tool which allows both heads to be used in four positions at 90° increments.
