The five best drywalling tools are featured below. They're manufactured by a group of well known companies and brand names - and they all deliver highly on quality and design.

Goldblatt G15850 Blade Runner Drywall Cutting Tool

This is the best selling drywall cutter by far. It's superior ability to cut through drywalling is second to none - one of it's best features is the fact that it's dual magnetised blades cut through both the front and the back face at the same time. It also cuts 90 degree angles in one pass and the blades are a simple no-fuss task to replace.

The housing is a nice design - fairly chunky, a robust feel to it and a cushioned grip where the palm sits. The Blade Runner will cut a variety of ways - edges, curves, random shapes and can handle both scoring and cutting equally well. A well designed hand tool, almost fun to use and definitely improves drywalling work.

Pentagon Tool "Foot Lifter"--Mini-Lifter for Drywall and Sheetrock

This is one of those dry wall tools you can't live without - and will wonder how you managed without it once you've bought one. The design is extremely basic but - it works. You simply slip the lifter beneath a drywall sheet, place pressure on it (with the foot) and it lifts the board up, into place and allows you to achieve a nice, tight seam.

When you're working alone it really does came into it's own. It's unbelievably robust, small enough to drop in your pocket and doesn't mind sharing space with the rest of the tool bag. Despite what it looks like it really is an effective leverage tool - and for the price it's an absolute steal.
