Is your name by chance Rob in Illinois? I've only seen a few people so damn argumentative.^^ This. He said "if you're only sawing for ten minutes, go with the cordless." Does that mean ten minutes per day? Ten minutes per hour? Ten continuous minutes through stacks of sheet goods? If the old boy making custom chicken coops is making them out of red oak or walnut that's an inch and a half thick, the best cordless saw won't have the nuts to go through more than about one or two pieces per battery.
