Rated 4 out of 5Â by Timmah Great tool! beware of blades
I bought this tool to cut bolts, nails and wood in tight spaces and it handles all that with no issue. My only issue thusfar has been finding blades... home depot, lowes, and walmart in my area dont carry them. All they sell are "universal arbor" blades... if you want to use that type then you need an adapter which blackanddecker hasnt come out with. I found that he porter cable adapter works with this tool very well. Only downside is reverting to using an allen key every blade change. Sure wish the industry would standardize the blades for these things.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jimmy I this better than my Rigid Mult-Tool
This is one part of the Matrix system that I bought in order to have one consistent tool at home. I have DeWalt and Milwaukee corded and cordless tools, but I have a wood shop several miles away and it seemed like anytime I wanted to do something, I didn't have the tool. The Matrix system is reasonable enough that I bought it.
I just used this attachment for the first time today. I used it to remove staples in a wood floor. Normally I use a pair of wire cutters, which takes hours. I thought I would try this and it worked so well, I was done in about 20 minutes. The method of changing blades is really nice, just flip the lever and change it out. My Rigid Multi-tool requires an allen wrench to change blades. This is a really good addition to my tools. I would highly recommend this tool for homeowners and even Pros to keep around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kurt77 Great product
Product performs better than expected. The whole B&D Matrix line is impressive. Batteries take a while to recharge, but you should have more than one to avoid interruptions. This oscillating tool attachment comes with a mini 4" detail sanding pad and 2 hook & loop sanding sheets; 1 each of 60 and 240 grits, (Good to know if considering buying the detail sanding attachment; not much difference in size)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bernief The Matrix Tool Set is Great
This is the third of the tool heads for the Matrix that I have bought. The oscillating head came in very handy to clean grain kernels out of the screen on our grain cleaner. I just swept the small saw blade sideways across the screen and it broke off the kernels off and shook them out of the screen. Also did some cutting with it and it worked well for the design purpose too.

Multi-tool vibration was really rough on the hands. After using it on a few nails on sheetrock, the blade became useless.
Also, the handle became really hot and made me concerned about the safety and quality of the product. The batter charger is very ill-fitting, and replacement blades are non-existent (haven't tried the universal adapter.)
I'm going to give it a couple of days of more work, but for now it's not looking good.
