To quote the OP

It will be a shop only saw and pretty much never make a miter cut, just straight cuts only.

For straight cuts only any inexpensive saw with a good bushing will work. For just cabinet work even a 8” mini will do the job and blades are cheaper too. He will only have to check for squareness. I still think Dewalt is the best choice because their stamped detents can be adjusted for square.

In this photo you can see the stamped detents and the slotted holes that allow for adjustability. Mine was perfect from the factory and has never needed an adjustment but it is nice to know that it is available.
