Today I was looking at the New Bosch “Sliding” Compound Miter saw. I love it. But, $599.00 it better be nice. This conversation reminded me of some of the benefits of a RAS is the ability to put on dado blade to do dadoes. Youtube woodworker Frank Howarth uses a RAS with a dado blade as a “permanent” setup in his shop just for cutting dadoes.
I have got a job coming up where I am going to need to cut dadoes quickly and at a pretty regular pace. Or drawer building with a dado is a good strength compromise to a dovetail but, a lot easier to attain with minimal setup.

-- I can see the cheese heads from here and it is great.
