Trying out the Black & Decker Drill


I used the tool(s) to make a little gate out of scrap bits of wood and a few fencing pails.

The ultimate 18V drill driver with the patented ability to convert into different power tools, the Black & Decker Multi Evo 18v multi-tool kit gives multi-functionality without compromising on performance.

This tool gives you the ability to own many tools in one. Normally you have to purchase the additional heads to add to this multi-tool, creating the perfect workshop, but with QVC you get five heads in total.

Convert the drill driver into a sander, jigsaw, impact driver, hammer drill, circular saw or oscillating tool. The Multievo multi-tool starter kit comes with a drill driver head which provides speed and strength to drill the largest holes (25mm) in wood, and metal (10mm), plus 10 torque settings for perfect screwdriving into a variety of materials with different screw sizes.

The lithium ion battery holds over 80% of its charge over 90 days whilst idle, so no need to charge unit before each use. The newer lithium ion miniaturization means the battery and drill are incredibly light and small, especially when you consider their power. It has variable speed for ultimate fingertip control for all drilling and screwdriving applications

I didn’t have enough fencing pails, so I had to make some and that’s where the circular saw came in handy for ripping up some planks.

Then I used the jig saw to shape the tops and the sander attachment to finish them off.

I wondered what impact the impact driver would have over and above a cordless drill as a screwdriver and was pleasantly surprised to find that it gives you loads more power and torque to drive screws right home without pilot holes. The drill/driver struggled to send them all the way in ( they were 12 x 60mm screws so quite chunky).

All in all this is an amazing kit for a beginner or experienced DIYer and can be added to as your needs dictate. Job done !
