I am looking to buy a new blade for my saw. I still currently have the stock blade and it is getting dull. I was looking at the Tenryu GM-25540 but wasn't sure how it would perform with this saw. It is my understanding that the stock blade is a thin kerf and all though this is sold as a thin kerf blade it is thick for a think kerf. I wasn't sure if I should look at a true thin kerf or if it really doesn't matter. I cut probably more plywood than hard wood, but was looking for a good blade for both and wood magazine rated this blade very well for both hardwood and plywood and it also rated well for both rips and cross cuts. I was just looking for some input. I know I should probably get two to 4 blades but cost is an issue.
