The other day I was installing an audio system in a community hall, and we had to take down the old system. Went up the ladder to remove the old brackets that held the speakers and took my robertson bit, and my phillips bit, just in case. I get up there and low and behold, there was not only robertson and phillips, but also standard. Argg!!! It was like the previous installer used whatever screws he could find. Oh, and not only that, but there was also two different sizes of robertson and phillips! I needed 5 bits! And nothing hurts worse than holding 30 lbs above your head with one hand while trying to change a bit in a drill with the other.

The new install? All #2 Robertson.
