A compound scms/cms are invaluable to any guy who makes a living with power tools. I could not imagine anyone trying to cut 12’ length of 4” molding or crown molding on a TS. A scms/cms is also far safer than TS regardless of what sled you might be using. I always have the Ridgid portable TS nearby when I am doing a house, but it used strictly for ripping and doing custom window casements. My CMS does about 95% of the grunt work. My next jobsite saw investment with be a 12” SCMS by either Dewalt/Bosch/Makita. You just cant beat a slider saw for what they can do.
