I bought a reconned one for $50. Sent it back after I overused it and they sent back a brand new one. It tends to overheat, but if you treat it right, it will serve you well. I use it for all kinds of things. Shop online for cheaper blades
Thanks for all the replies, after much consideration I am just going to save about $80 and buy a japanese saw to cut the jams with. I just don't think I will use the multi-max enough to justify the price tag.
Actually, for cutting jambs, you should buy the Ryobi flush cut saw
