me i never get rid of tools
i worked to hard to acquire them

in your situation i might find a way to make a rolling stand
for both the slide saw and the RAS
a cab with a common back fence and sliding stops
with fold down wings to either side
the base box could have room for a vacuum or air compresor
or some other tools on shelves or storage in drawers

they both have similar functions
yet are different in good ways

on the slide saw you can do compound angles
to your hearts content
without trashing the fence or table

set up right the RAS can plow for selves
and still rip if needed it the table saw is set for some repeat cuts
and turned to sand or route if needed

together these two are a dynamic duo
and you will never find that price again
if you change your mind
