I’m guessing that your 40 tooth blade is a combination blade.

When you resaw you are ripping. I did a project recently (Tinker Toys made with oak) that required a lot of ripping. I find that a true rip blade is faster than a combination blade. My ripping blade has 24 teeth.

Also, I use thin kerf, but I add a stabilizer to minimize wobble. The problem for you may be that the stabilizer reduces your depth of cut.
