    Ridgid, available at Home Depot, makes really nice drills that someone with small hands can manage. And they have a lifetime warranty!

    Your best bet is to go to your local home center and hold a few different models so you can see which one fits in your hand the best. Test the cordless drills, the corded drills, etc to see which one you like the most.

    Michelle is right - go to a store and "feel" them as everyone's hands are slightly different. I have very small hands but arthritic joints force me to buy much larger gloves than needed - so, personally, go in, check out the drills, etc. rather than second-guess. Many women, these days, do home repairs and what was once considered "man's work" so I'd check out the line that Cindy768 is mentioning too.

    Tomboy Tools are ergonomic tools designed specifically for women's hands. TT makes 2 different lithium powered drills, An 8v cordless impact gear-driven drill/driver weighing 1lb 11oz, and a 12v cordless impact, variable speed drill/driver weighing 2 1/4 lbs. Both have soft hand grips that fit women's hands, keyless chucks, forward & reverse, and LED lights. TT products are sold only by Independent Consultants, so you can't find them in your big box stores. Our tools are pink, but they are totally different from the pink ones you might find retail since they are designed for our hands! If you google Tomboy Tools, it will go to a Project Home site, but it is the correct website, where you can see our products and hopefully make contact. The company is in transition to a bigger and better site, but you may call 740-8284020; this is the customer support #. Someone will refer you to a consultant close to you.
