Good post. The price of a 12" blade well out weighs the added demensional cutting capacity. And if your like me, the RAS and MS share blades as they are of the same type of top cutting machine requiring a 0 or negitive rack blade. I often use the miter saw for rough cuts for shortening longer boards, and doing the more precision cuts with the RAS. The RAS, seams to give a much better finish cut using the same blade than the MS due to blade angle/rotation exit angle.
A slider, will actually have the same as the RAS, as you pull, start, lower, push the blade into the stock. With an upward blade spin direction on exit, you will by far experience a cleaner exit cut and smoother cut all around.
