I've had that happen to 2 different 10" miter saws. In both cases, there's a roller bearing around the blade arbor shaft. For whatever reason, one of the rollers in the bearing develops a flat spot along its length. When that happens to come around, it kicks the blade over, which means quite a lot at the rim.
One was a yard sale special, the owner said it cut funny. I bought the other (Delta) new and worked it to death. Great saw. So, off to see the repair dudes. $50 each and they cut like new.
