Some of the difficulties:

- Tilting the blade
- Changing the blade height
- Maintaining parallel between the blade and fence
- Maintaining parallel between the blade and miter devices
- Installation of a proper riving knive or splitter (some newer Euro handheld saws have this covered)

The parallelism affects more than accuracy. Wood trapped between a stop or fence, and caught in the rising rear teeth, can be extremely dangerous. Routers (and band saws, but differently) rotate around a center, and aren’t affected by parallelism errors.

There is a huge power difference between a circular saw and a decent table saw. Table saws also use heavy duty arbors and cast parts, straighter parts and vibration damping drastically improve cut quality.
