Tool: Black+Decker Matrix Quick Connect System 

One of my favorite tools on the jobsite is the Black and Decker Matrix. It comes with a drill head but has multiple attachments you can purchase for it. I only use it for the little circular saw head. The drill shape makes it easy to use and control. Other compact circular saws, in my opinion, have a more awkward shape.  

The arrow guide on it is accurate, allowing for precise cuts. I use it for laminate, hardwood (not ¾ solid), vinyl plank and plywood. It has eliminated the need to load up the table saw for most jobs, and it takes up way less space on the van. The downside is the battery life, so a second battery is a must.
