Hey pal,

I can find no fault in using an 8” blade on your saw..I’ve used a 7 1/4” a few times on my old 3 .hp. Craftsman, and on my 5 h.p. Unisaw. I don’t have one, but I might suggest using a blade stabilizer on the 8”, just to see if it helps with run-out. I think it would work good also on a 10” blade…..depending on the blade, of course. I’ve even ran a 6” and 8” dado blade on mine before with no problem…only when I had sent my blades out for re-sharpening, and was out of regular saw blades…lol. When times get tough, you’ve got to get tough with them…...Go for it, pal, and see how it works…...I think you’ll be surprized…....
