          The Bosch PS22 is the most compact and lightweight 12-Volt Max drill/driver on the market, making it ideal for overhead use and reaching into tight corners. The Brushless motor allows for 2X the life over previous generation drill/drivers, as well as greater runtime. The PS22 is the first 12-Volt Max drill/driver on the market to include on tool bit storage and a belt clip.

          The 12-Volt Max EC Brushless Lithium-Ion 1/4in. Hex Drill/driver is a well balanced, lightweight powerhouse. The 2 speed, stubby configuration and excellent trigger response make suitable for a wide range of projects, from a delicate drill to driving a deck screw, even in tight places that would otherwise require a right angle drill.
          Pros: Durable, Powerful, All In One, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

          The 4 inch Drill Press Vise is just right for my 10" drill press. It needed a little bit of "finishing work" at first, like grinding down uneven jaw inserts and paint lumps off the bottom - now, you'd never know it. All in all, it is a great addition to my workshop - more useful than I expected. After years if "inventing" ways to hold small pieces while drilling, I wish I had gotten one years ago.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, handy

          The Porter-Cable TS056 is as versatile as it is tough. This tool fires both heavy duty 3/8 in. Crown staples from 1/4 in. to 9/16 in., and 18-Gauge Brad nails from 1/2 in. to 5/8 in. Having this versatility allows for a wide range of fastening applications, such as insulation, vapor barrier, flooring underlayment, screening, and felt paper. Oil-Free operation requires no regular maintenance and eliminates the risk of oil stains.

          The Porter-Cable Pneumatic Crown Stapler and Brad Nailer feels solid and powerful - yet light enough for my arthritic hands. At 90 psi (80 - 100 psi is the recommended air pressure) staples and brads are driven flush and clean, even into knots. A well balanced choice, when access to compressed air is not an issue.
          Pros: Strong, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, well balanced

          The TCP Connected lights bring a whole new meaning to remote control. Though not geek, I must admit that once I got the light bulbs connected and responding to a PC, all I could think about is the unlimited range of options this system offers. It took me about 10 minutes to be up and running - the rest is up to my imagination.
          Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Great Dimming, Nice Design, Easy Installation, great (human) tech support

          The Glidden Flat Latex paint flowed smoothly onto a textured wall, filling the irregular surface quite well with a 3/8" roller. Nice, even spread with only 2 - 3 strokes and no splatter. One coat was enough to hide most stains, except for a couple of very dark spots that required extra passes with a roller.
          Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Looks Great

          Beam Angle

          Where can you find the beam angle of this particular model (or any of the PAR38 Philips LED bulbs)? I'm interested in purchasing the 36deg beam angle PAR38 LED from Philips. Does this bulb have a 36deg beam?

Installation is easy and requires no tools. The convenient gauge will allow for fuel checks without removing the tank.
           

          How do you "perform a leak test" as advised in the final step of the directions?

          Answer: 
          After all connections are made I turn on and shut off the tank valve. This pressurizes the gas lines leading to the burner valves and shows the propane level on the gage. If the level goes down, with the tank and burner valves shut off - there is a leak. Check again in about 10 minutes. If the level on the gage remains unchanged, I conclude that there is no leak.
          Good luck.
