Default Harbor Freight 10" SCMS?

American Woodworker said that their 12" was a remarkable value at $200;
might not be as solid as a $600 saw, but fine for casual use.

Their 10" is now $90. I don't expect to use it much as I use a RAS for all
my 90 degree stuff, but the RAS is a pain to set up for off angles. I
rarely do any, but it would be nice to have a $90 SCMS for them. But, if it
is worthless then it is just burning $90.

Anyone actually used it?

Iknow I'm going to kick myself when I get the answer, but what is an "SCMS"?
