Tools for Women

Recommended Posts

Where can I find tools with smaller grips or handles? My hands are a bit smaller, so I have trouble using some of my husbands hand tools and power tools. In our house, I fix just about anything I can - that way I don't have to wait for him to have time. There are some things, though, that I cannot do because the tool's grip is too big. I am not looking for pink or flowery tools, either. I just want something for a smaller hand. Any suggestions?

Just about every tool manufacturer makes compact versions of their drills. Many distributors don't carry them but they definitely can order them.

My Black and Decker drill works pretty well. I have a 12v cordless, and the grip isn't beefed up at all.

My problem is with some tools that I want to use - like his circular saw, belt sander, etc. Usually, the meaty portion of the grip is positioned farther back, which makes it tiring for my hands.

I'll check out the web sites of my favorite tool makers, and see what I can find. After all, shopping for tools is about as fun as shopping for shoes, in my opinion!
