Gees...I don't feel alone any more knowing there are more than me still using a RAS. I do have a 12" DW Sliding Miter Saw under the bench that I use outside on saw horses for big miter cutting. It just has too much travel forward and back for the shop. If I was to set up a SMS in the shop I would buy the Bosch with the articulating arm.
Hey, I like all you guys ideas, I too fought the saw dust problem for years. Also like that newer Electronic saw, the old WWII Dewalts were the ones I started out on, and used them for years on the job sites, they were real workhorses. I picked this one up off Craigs list for $35 years ago and I use it on every project. It is so handy to just walk over turn on and wack the end off a board, with that 80t Freud blade it gives a glass smooth crosscut.
