W, Shelley: you brought up something that really bugs me about so many portable electric tools, and that is the stiff plastic-sheathed cords they use. Even some fairly expensive tools do this. I have a Milwaukee heat gut that has a cord so stiff it takes 2 hands to sort of straighten it out—but it springs back into whatever shape it had when you let go of it. The plastic cords are obviously a way to save a few pennies in manufacturing. A pox on them!!

Rubber cords are so much nicer in every way.

By the way, Bonesbr, my cat hates that saying.
