Power Tools for Women: When You Have To Do It Yourself

Home Improvement
Are there projects around the house that you've been asking a man in your life to do and they still aren't finished? They get pushed to the backburner of his priority list because he probably thinks hanging a curtain rod is insignificant.

Luckily, you don't need a Y chromosome to use power tools. Here are some key features to look for when choosing the right equipment to complete your to-do list:

* Weight: No, women are not weak and they can do anything they set their minds to. But, there is no denying that they are the fairer sex, which means that they are simply not built to be as strong as men, unless of course they're body-builders.

That said, power tools created with women in mind tend to be made of lighter materials. They are still just as durable and efficient, just lighter and easier to handle. If you aren't interested in "just for women" equipment, just try out several pieces. While you're in the store, lift them and, if possible, give the tool a test drive.

* Grips: Women tend to have smaller hands than men so having grip handles to accommodate this difference. So, if you have a lighter power drill with a smaller grip, all the projects around the house are easier and don't have to wait for a man to do them. The grips also should be softer and more giving. Some power tools have a firm yet flexible grip that absorb the shocks from use.

* Comfort: Ok, comfort is very important. You don't want your hands to get calloused while you are doing it yourself. Just because we can hang a towel bar doesn't mean we don't want soft smooth hands. Again, you can opt for the special "just for women" power tools or simply give several pieces a try before you buy.

* Battery vs. Corded: For women, the battery-powered pieces are probably more convenient and easier to use. These can go anywhere and you can find ones that are smaller in size than the corded variety and the smaller it is, the lighter it is.

There are some lines of power tools designed specifically for women, but you don't have to limit yourself to these. Just remember the features above when you are out shopping and decide what is most important to you.

Give them a test drive and take a seminar on proper use. You don't have to be at the mercy of the Y chromosome-take control of the projects around the house. If you want it done and you want it done now, you're going to have to do it yourself!

You don't have to buy special equipment and they aren't all pink, but you can find the right power tools to fit your needs. You get a great sense of accomplishment when you complete your projects on your own.

You can prove that you are a self-sufficient and capable woman who also happens to be handy with a power drill. Stop waiting for someone else to get the job done. Besides, if you want something done right, you should just do it yourself.

Makita cordless power tools are known for their ergonomic design and ease of use. They're the best choice for both women and men when you want to do the job yourself and do it well. Browse the online store and get great discounts on power tools at
