I want to buy my husband a Fein MultiMaster. I'm not sure which to
get -- the FMM-250 or the MSXE-636. Is there a big difference? Which
one has the most comprehensive starter kit? I don't care about the
price, mainly I want the best starter package. I want him to be able
to use it right away without having to get more attachments or
whatever. He mostly does projects around the house, repairs,
remodeling, etc., some (but not as much) woodworking or crafts.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
The kit I bought was called 'TOP'. A metal case, and lots of goodies,
including dust collection attachment. Variable speed is nice too. By
far (at that time) best bang for the buck.
Expect a big smile.

The most comprehensive set would be the FMM-250 "Top", which includes
not only the newer tool but several items not included in the MSXE-636
XL kit, one of which is the dust extraction system.
The major difference in the tools is that the older one holds the
blades etc by friction alone, while the newer one has an "X" shaped
piece on the mount that holds them positively--IMO based on experience
with the older tool this is a significant improvement.
You want the latest model, IIRC the 250. This model has the quick release
for all the attachments.
AND if you husband wants this tool and price is no object you save lots of
money by getting the kit with the most accessories. Accessories are
Expensive and you get a sizeable discount with the larger kits.

randomly, spend the 200 bucks or whatever it costs for a business
license, rent some space in San Diego or San Francisco or Los Angeles
or Seattle and ship over a few containers of your product, then put up
a Web site with direct ordering and take out an ad in Fine Woodworking
or the like and send some sample machines out to the woodworking
magazines and if your product is decent and useful you'll likely sell
quite a lot of them. Make sure you hire a bookkeeper and pay your
taxes. Get an account with UPS or Federal Express if they're small
enough to ship that way, otherwise negotiate a deal with a freight
