What Am I Missing???
My router table doesn't have a miter slot.
When building cabinets, the router table was used quite extensively.
I've probable made over a 1000 separate cope and stick joints and other end grain profiles with a simple shop made sled.
I've made tens of dozens of finger jointed or box jointed drawer boxes and routed another several dozen corner spline slots, all without a miter gauge.
Now, the largest case work I do may be humidors and gun cases. The router table continues to be a very important tool, one I'd be hard pressed do without. Still haven't found the utility of a miter slot.
