When I went to replace my remanufactured cheap ryobi saw, I did a lot of reseacch and actually tested a number of 12” sliders.

I spent a few extra coin on a Milwalkee SCMS. One of my major concerns was dust control, this was the best ( aside from the Kapex system which was far too much). I don’t care for fancy lasers, don’t trust them. The Milwalkee has two nice lights on each side of the blade to cut on one side of the line or the other. It cuts square and can rip a board over one foot in width. It has plenty of power and when fitted with a hood connected to my DC, virtually no dust in the air. The digital readout is nice to have and micro adjuster actually works.
