In my high school shop we have an Original Saw Company RAS. It’s ok to use, but I don’t find it to be terribly accurate. Most of the time I’ll just use one of the DeWalt miter saws, which I am way more accustomed to. The RAS likes to pull forward as you are cutting, so you don’t need to pull hard. There are stories of people pulling way too fast and causing the blade to rise up on top of the workpiece, shooting the carriage out. I don’t know how true that is, but from my experience it seems believable.
