Ladies' Tools

"I've been screaming it for years. I want girl-sized tools! Real tools, not toys. I want them smaller and lighter and with appropriately sized handles—and pink, so my husband won't steal them. Ninety-eight percent of the guys at the DIY stores look at me like I have two heads when I ask for them. I really, really want a small circular saw. But, I suppose until a girl starts a tool company, it'll never happen."
