    I need some advice :) I'm not a DIY novice, but am still learning!
    I have about a dozen small odd jobs that need doing in my new house: picture hooks, puitting curtain track and an outside doorbell etc.
    I was thinking of using a drill, but am worried they are quite heavy and i'd make a hash of things (I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so I don't have great arm strength).
    So I did my research and came across a power screwdriver that is small and very lightweight. Would a power screwdriver be ok for the jobs mentioned, or would a drill be better?

    Any adivice gratefully recieved! ;)

    heeelllooo c b and welcome

    difficulty here is screwdrivers do little else than drive screws

    a good quality 12volt drill driver would be fairly light and do most things including drilling in lighter wall construction

    with perhaps a mains hammer drill for the heavier drilling
