Default Fein Multimaster blades

I was doing some searching around on the internet, and saw some interesting posts on the multimaster here. I saw a number of people complain about the cost on the blades/attachments. Upon more internet searching, I found this:


glenechohardware.com/index.php/products-/fein-.html

That seems like a crazy deal, I called the store to see if they would ship blades and they said no problem. Just thought I would pass it along, as it seems to be a great way to get some blades at a less expensive price, seeing as how ridiculous the cost on them is.

There may be a difference in the blades. Germans are very reluctant to reduce the quality just to get some volume. Manufacturers from other countries are not reluctant even if their name is on the package/labels. In some countries with huge manufacturing capacity, the manufacturers will make anything to lower specs for another company/marketer/importer as long as their name is not on the label. - That comes with the U.S. being in a price/market driven market and not a quality driven market.

At least with blades, you do not get into the "assembled in" situations where you have no idea what you could get.

These are, apparently, actual Fein blades. They aren't a knockoff, I made sure to find out.

As long as they are in the original Fein packaging and Fein is not spelled "Fine" that should be O.K., but only time and use will tell.

Good techniques will make the blades last much longer.
