Here s the thing. Most cordless tools are made for contractors in the field not for wood shop use.

Totally agree with this statement. For the longest time, cordless tools were confined to general use and mainly for contractors. That is changing, however, with better motor and battery technology. The big players are moving into specialty business, such as woodworking. All the major players now have cordless random orbit sanders and are adding more tools every year. The biggest drawback is run time. The RO sanders will only run 20-30 minutes on a charge and someone who is doing a lot of woodworking will use them longer than that.

Where are all the battery powered belt sanders and routers. I hate having a cord on a sander. It is ungainly and annoying.

Also, show me a battery powered air compressor. Then I ll be impressed.
