I dropped the edge of a sheet of 3/4 MDF on one of my my extension cords… crushed pretty bad. I cut the bad part out and kept both pieces to use for other stuff.

That being said, buying SOOW or SJOOW cord by the foot isn’t very expensive and I would rather do that than use a new extension cord.

Also, almost all extension cords are made with SJT type jacketing which is much stiffer and has a ‘memory’. SOOW and SJOOW cord has a much more flexible rubber that doesn’t tangle as easily.
