Essential DIY Tools For Small Spaces

Essential DIY Tools For Small Spaces

I’m sure that many of you who read our blog have embraced the DIY ethic and made major or minor changes to your homes. And, we would like to hazard a guess that some areas have been trickier than others to get to properly.

Whether it’s awkward corners or unusual cubby holes, most homes have difficult to reach areas. And when it comes to DIY, that can cause a myriad of problems. With this in mind, we thought we would reveal several tools that can help you squeeze into those tiny areas of small space. Make sure you have them in your toolkit!

Right angled drill

Right angled drills are just the job when you can’t reach into a tight area to either screw something in or screw something out. That said, they can be expensive, and if you are only going to use them occasionally, it doesn’t seem worth it. Instead, try an angled drill chuck. They are much cheaper, and will attach to your typical drill to give you the access you need.

Air tools

Air tools are just another way of describing pneumatic tools that work with pressurized gas. They are powerful, quick, and, most importantly, they are smaller than the standard tools you might use, such as drills. There is a broad range of air tools available, from drills to nut removers. And, they can come in very handy when you are pushed for space.

Jaw basin wrench

Making upgrades to your bathroom or kitchen? If so, you have probably had troubles with loosening awkward basin nuts that are too far away to reach. However, with a jaw basin wrench, your problems are solved in an instant. You can adjust it to the size you need, and it can give you access to those tricky nuts in just a few seconds.

Japanese nail set

Of course, it’s not just the home that has difficult to reach parts. If you have ever tried your hand at carpentry, you will probably have had frustrations with being unable to get a hammer and nail to where you need it. If so, then your answer lies in a Japanese nail set. They are the perfect way of driving a nail into a tight spot, from the smallest of angles.

Offset ring spanner

This is one of the most useful ring spanners out there. It gives you the grip and tension you need to remove nuts, as well as having the design to get into tight and awkward spaces. And, one of the best things about it is that it also allows your hand a little room, so that you don’t graze the skin of your knuckles.

The cordless circular saw

Let’s not forget about making your new pieces, as well as fixing or removing them. A cordless circular saw is a perfect option for you. Because there is no cord, it is much safer for you to attempt work in tricky and tight spaces. Every home should have one - has yours?

We hope these tools help you get out of your tight DIY spots. Let us know if we have missed out any more tools for tight spaces!
