I think the thing to remember is that some jobs are better cordless and some require the power of an AC motor. I have used older cordless circular saws but I need more power. My 40 year old Makita “Blue Skillsaw” is bullet proof and has served me very well. The old Porter Cable and De-wallet saws are pretty good too. I will never buy power tools from; Black and Decker, Ryobi, Craftsman, or Hitachi. The Hitachi thing is a new prejudice. I recently acquired a 12” Hitachi compound miter saw and it is a piece of steaming goo. It is a replacement for an old Porter Cable that I broke.

The point after all of this rambling is that I think I will need to include a line item in my yearly budget for small power tool replacement going forward. The days of buying a tool that will last your lifetime are gone.
