I just bought a used miter saw that needs a new power cord. I found this one but $25 for a cord seems a bit steep. That "official" cord is 16AWG with two wires. I also found this one when I searched for 16AWG power cord. Is there a reason I couldn't just cut the PC connector side off and wire it up to the saw?
As long as you don't splice it, but install it by hooking it up internally consistent with the way the original one was (including noting the conductor type, aluminum vs copper), then you will be fine.
