I have wished I had a slider ever since I got my Delta 10” CMS back in 1990 something..
It is limited to nothing wider than about 5 1/2” and 3 1/4” thick.
Otherwise a rock solid saw, made of cast iron.

I have the same problem others do with the mounting depth required by the sliders because my work station is against a wall.

I really like the Mikita design with the hypoid drive and the double slide rails.
Or the Festool of course.
Or the Bosch Glide, but seems some folks have problems with the Bosch.

I have basically decided when I upgrade I will give serious consideration to a non sliding 12” saw, or the Mikita 10” slider.
