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.

I too have trouble justifying the replacement costs of batteries and am considering returning to all corded tools. I had heard about battery "memory" until a friend, an engineer for a battery company, told me they never could figure out where that myth started but it is not true.

The battery replacement cost is an on-going problem. That is why I chose the Ridgid Brand from Home Depot. When you register it properly you get FREE BATTERIES FOR LIFE! So far this is the only company that has this warranty. This is why I went with this brand. As a weekend warrior woodworker it is a perfect choice for me as it does everything I put to it.

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.
