Made my usual pass through the tool department at HD and noticed they are now selling the FEIN Multimaster, a kit for $199. Checked online and there it is again, same price. My question is, is this the actual same tool, less a blade or two, that they have been marketing on the tube for a few years? I know the big boxes have a habit of marketing their own special models at times.

Make sure of the model number. The 250Q is THE machine. Knock offs may be in the offing, especially at the big box stores. You will be just as well off buying the Bosch or even Dewalt for a lesser price. I DO like the blade disconnect on my Fein 250Q much better than the others. Blades are atrocious on cost. I find deals online and have bought a Bosch adapter so I can use Bosch blades (>$)
Price for the 250Q is still around $300 with an assortment of blades. I checked at HD online, but they didn't offer the power head, only high priced blades.
