Today's cordless tools

Cordless tools have been around for a few decades now, but they've never completely replaced corded tools in a woodworking shop. That day may be at hand. Changes in battery technology have made cordless tools lighter, more compact, more ergonomic, and more capable of delivering the kind of results a woodworker demands.

Regarding replacement batteries, Ridgid offers lifetime warranty on their tools, including the batteries. Buy a good set and maybe an extra battery one time and they will replace if they ever fail.

for me it comes down to this, Certain cordless tools have their place, others cordless tools, I won't have in my shop because of amount of use they would get, would be too much, and i would be changing the batteries constantly, who wants to be cutting through a board and have a saw start bogging down because it doesn't have enough juice to power through.

They sure come in handy whenever the power goes off and you need to make repairs in a hurry.A small solar panel can keep the batteries charged up too and that is another advantage of using battery powered tools.

The concern I have about cordless tools is that the replacement batteries are expensive.

I love battery-operated power tools. No cords to trip me up or get cut by mistake. They are lighter and just as powerful as must corded tools.
