Charlie – The teeth on smaller diameter blade make a tighter arc than those of a 10” blade, which translates to the equivalent of a steeper hook angle. It should be fine for ripping, but I suspect it’ll be a mixed bag for ultra fine ply cuts. Most plywood blades have a fairly low hook angle. Smaller blades will work, and may even be easier to spin, but I doubt they’ll cut as cleanly on a critical fine cut. Keeping the height on a smaller diameter blade low should help some, but I don’t think it’s worth passing up a good blade for.
