Power tools are like books in one
important way — they can't always
be judged by their covers.
For instance, a pair of drills sitting
side-by-side in a glass case at the
hardware store appear to be exactly
the same. But closer examination
reveals that one is priced at $25,
while the other is priced at $100.
The difference is that the expensive
drill is the "professional" model
and the other is the so-called "consumer"
model: a distinction that
runs deeper than the name and
Professional tools are designed
to be more powerful, last longer,
and perform better under stress
than their consumer counterparts.
They are built for carpenters,
plumbers, electricians — anyone
who uses a power tool every day
