Black & Decker’s Matrix lineup of modular power tool bases and heads, as well as the compatible Craftsman Bolt-On System, are a great way for DIYers to get a lot of power tool functionality for not a lot of money.
Black & Decker has come out with a new 6-tool combo kit (BDCDMT1206KITC), seemingly just in time for the 2014 Black Friday and holiday shopping season.
It’s currently priced at $203 (this might change), and comes with a 20V Max cordless base handle, a charger, a storage case, and the following tool head attachments:
- Jig saw
- Oscillating multi-tool
- Impact Driver
There are also a bunch of starter accessories included in the bundle.

I’m a dedicated tools kind of person, but this seems like a nice money-saving bundle for DIYers and homeowners looking for maximum bang for the buck.
I have limited experiences with the Black & Decker Matrix and Craftsman Bolt-On tools, but they’ve all been positive. If you look at the various B&D Matrix tools and attachments on Amazon (search link), you’ll see that most users’ have good things to say about the tools.
These are all basic tools, but a lot of times that’s all a beginner or budget-conscious DIYer needs.
My guess is that the new availability of this combo indicates that it might be timed for the holidays, but maybe not. It’s currently listed as being out of stock.
