We have a Black and Decker handi saw model CHS6000 and the charger is input 120V 60hz 7.5w and the output is 9vac 100ma with model number.
Looking around for adapters I see numerous models. Some have different outputs. How flexible is the 100ma?

Go for the ones where the specs specifically mention the CHS6000. If it says 9VAC 100mA, it should be ok. The mA part, can be higher (either the battery will charge faster, or if limited, it won't use the extra available juice). Too low, and it will charge too slowly.

I have a box of about 10 and almost all are output: DC
The VAC ones are too high on MA such as 300 or 400 so it seems none of these will work. None go with the device but would be a substitute if the input and output matched or was close.

You didn't read at all what I said:

The mA part, can be higher

A device that's designed to charge at 200mA, will charge slower if the power adapter is 100mA (or sometimes won't charge, better not try it). It will charge as designed on a 200mA charger. It will charge at 200mA on a 400mA charger (the higher mA doesn't mean it will burn the device, it's just the maximum it can handle. There's no problem if the device only asks lower amperage).
