I've had very good luck with a Morse blade from Grainger. We used
to rub the teeth off of the carbon blades and the thinner blades.
I decided to try the .035 weight blade. We've had the same blade
on for well over a year.
Lennox Bimetal blades are #1, with Starrett bimetal blades a distant
A 14/10T or a regular 14T with "raker" tooth forms, would be
A smaller tooth count...such as 14, 16T or 18T will last longer, work
better on thin stuff, but cut slower.
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in
becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an
equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any
because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the
person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...
There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag,
the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the
English language.. and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people.'

That import stuff is the next thing to banding iron. Get a good Lenox
bimetal blade. 14 TPI should work, you might be able to go coarser
and/or get some of the fancier tooth forms if this is a production
thing and cutting speed is an item of interest. I keep 14, 18 and 24
TPI blades on hand, one pitch just doesn't do it all. Cutting wax
stick helps with some of the tougher stuff.
