Default Replacement mitre saw blade - how many teeth ?

HI Folks
I have an elderly 'Performance pro' mitre/chop saw,
with the original (brutal!) blade - which is 254 x 30 x 32t.

It's grand for chopping up 4x2 for roof supports - but lacks finesse for
'posh' work.

I want to get a decent (square) cut edge on some laminate flooring -
so was looking for a replacement blade with finer teeth.

Seems that this blade can be obtained in 40t, 60t and 80t -
(all on Amazon) what's recommended for general 'fine' use ?
I'd appreciate your suggestions (I'll be keeping the original 32t
blade for 'rough' work).

Thanks
Adrian

Angle grinder, of course.

Would that be with 40, 60 or 80 grit abrasive?

More teeth equal better finish. Get the 80 teeth, but only use it on
fine work, not chopping up 3x2.

I would say 60 is plenty for fine work unless you are cutting very small
parts (skimpy picture frame mouldings say). I have a 60 tooth TCT blade
on mine and find that is fine for finish work on mouldings like cornice
or architrave and also general cutting.

Thanks John....

Not planning in getting into picture-framing g -
but the original blade's a bit 'agricultural' for anything that's going
to be on show....

More teeth equals finer and smoother. But number of teeth isnt the
only factor, and I suspect that's why your 32 teeth blade gives a
rough finish. 40 teeth ought to be plenty for a perfect finish. More
will just make the saw cut slower.
