If cleaning your current blade doesn’t help, or if the current blade isnt’ a high quality blade, I’d definitely look to a new one. Considering the task, I’d opt for a full kerf blade to reduce the chance of deflection (though I do think a high quality thin kerf blade for many TS operations are fine).

Without knowing your blade budget, I’ll start with some bargains….the Delta 35-7657 40T ATB general purpose blade is still on sale through Cripe or Amazon for < $30 shipped. This German made Onsrud 50T blade is ~ $25 shipped. For ~ $70, the Infinity Combomax is the best of the 50T blades I’ve used. Nearly any high quality 40T to 60T 1/8” full kerf blade should do well if it’s suitable for TS.
