I have an old B&D 10” chop saw and it is as accurate as a chop saw can be. I bought it new and it cost less than $100. It has served me well all these years. I don’t see any reason to replace it. I have all kinds of saws in my shop, so if I want accuracy, I use my table saw and sled. The chop saw is used for rough cuts like on 2×4’s. There are too many moving parts on a SCMS for it to be a precision cutting machine. The more moving parts involved, the less accuracy you will get. That is a plain and simple fact of machines.
