Companies such as "Fastenal" and "McMaster-Carr" sell replacement cords for power tools which are generic but within the specs for that tool. These also meet the UL/FM (Underwriters Laboratory/Factory Mutual) ratings. I also have had OSHA compliance training and don't remember anything specific about the length of a power cord, but that doesn't mean the ruling isn't hid somewhere in the fine print. The companies I have worked for had their own specific rules about power cords.

Fastenal is around here, so I may wander on in there sometime. Thanks.
