TOM: Hi. I’m home improvement expert Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit. Multitasking is a way of life these days and you could put it work for your home projects with the Black & Decker Matrix. Matrix gives you the flexibility of several power tools in one with best in class speed and torque for a range of do it yourself activities.
Here’s how it works. The Matrix Quick Connect System consist of a lithium powered drill driver base unit with either a 12 volt of 20 volt capacity, and six attachments which includes an impact driver, a jigsaw and a router. There’s also the detail sander, a trim saw and an oscillating tool.
Let me show you how this works. The switch from one tool to the next, all you have to do is push down this button, pop off the head that you’re done with and pop on the next one. There you go, we switched from the drill driver to the vibrating sander.
The Matrix holds power for up to 18 months and it’s got an 11 position clutch that provides extra control which will help prevent stripping and overdriving of screws. The complete system cost over 40% less than busying six similar power tools and a whole thing to be efficiently stored in one tool bag. Look for the Black & Decker Matrix Quick Connect System at the Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart and Amazon.
