Black & Decker’s ProjectMate 3-in-1 decorating tool is a corded multi-function power tool that addresses the “preparation work blues” by spinning three types of prep work attachments at 8,500 rpm. Scraper blades (like sharpened claws) remove paint, a detail sander prepares and finishes surfaces for fresh paint, and a screwdriver attachment removes and refastens hardware, outlet covers and switch plates.
OK — the “screwdriver” attachment looks more like an “also ran” when compared to the other attachments, but hey — you get it in the kit.
A $70 street price puts the ProjectMate kit smack dab in the middle of the hobbyist market, which is good because pros won’t really need it. But it could be a great addition for someone who doesn’t have any wood prep capability and wants to give it go.
