I would go with a DeWalt or other good brand of CMS (not a slider) and an old DeWalt radial arm saw. SCMS’s have 3 to 4 times more flex than a CMS or good RAS (I measured it). If a SCMS or CMS will do the job at hand, it might be my go-to saw. If I wanted more accuracy or had a larger board that would fit on your RAS table better, I would go to the radial arm saw. People that say a miter saw is as accurate as a radial arm saw need to qualify their statement. That might be true if it was a narrow cut or a cheap radial arm saw being compared. Often there is overlap in tool capabilities. If a good table saw can be used for the job, it will have less flex than a RAS or miter saw.
