Tools and Materials to Tackle Home Improvement Projects
By: Danny Lipford
This is a great time of year to get outside and tackle your home improvement to-do list. Here are three great products that will make taking on any DIY project around your house easier.
Drill/Driver with Multi-Tool CapacityWhether it’s drilling, screwing, cutting, sanding, or routing; the Matrix drill/driver from Black & Decker is the perfect combination tool for all your home improvement projects.
The Matrix is available in both 12-volt and 20-volt cordless models, with a lithium-ion battery that hold a charge up to 18 months. A corded Matrix drill/driver with a 4-amp motor is also available.
Fast and easy drilling and driving are only the beginning with the Matrix. Thanks to the Quick Connect System and six optional accessory tools, the drill on the Matrix can be removed in seconds and an impact driver, oscillating tool, circular trim saw, detail sander, jigsaw, or router snapped on to take its place.

It can be applied in temperatures as low as 47° F and cures to form joints up to 4,000-psi strong. Titebond III also sands easily and is FDA approved for indirect food contact, such as cutting boards.
