We have been reviewing tools and equipment in our workshop and film studio again. This time we thought we would ask you to think about a lightweight platform to work from when working at height. While you may need a ladder for some jobs for others you will find yourself balancing on a chair or stool because it is ‘easier’ than getting out the step ladder.
If you recognise this scenario you would probably make good use of this working platform. It is aluminium, with folding legs, so it is easy to store and move around. It has a wide base which allows you to get a good stable stance if you are drilling or scraping etc. It can also be used as a workbench or sawhorse – but keep it clear of clutter when you are using it to stand on.

We have recently been asked by tool company Screwfix to compile some independent video reviews of their products. These are underway and are being updated onto our site weekly.
DIY Doctor likes video tool reviews because they are a very easy way for us to communicate the pros and cons of each tool for the users of our site. So our customers win.
Product manufacturers like their tools to be reviewed so that their products get exposure to the market, and are more likely to be found by DIY enthusiasts. So our commercial colleagues win.
Our CEO Mike Edwards fancies himself as a bit of a star of the stage, and he certainly has the knowledge to be able to properly test the tools having spent more than 20 years in the building industry before setting up DIY Doctor. So he wins.
If you like the very positive vibe of this blog post and you are a DIY and Home Improvement enthusiast then please do recommend tools that you want to see reviewed either by commenting here or visit our Forum and make a request under the relevant thread.
If you are a tool manufacturer and would like to have your product reviewed then please contact us for more information. We wont hold our punches, but if you are as sure of your product as we are of ours I am sure you wont mind the scrutiny.
