I have a lot of great suggestions: Diablo, Irwin Marples, Delta, Onsrud
I going to do some research on these to figure out which is best for my purposes and budget.

My saw is a Central Machinery, 10”, 2 hp. lots of power and its in good condition although it is a budget saw. i got it for $40 on C-list, so the blade may end up costing more then the saw.

I had not considered cleaning the blade I have, that’s a good idea.
However the blade in question came with the saw in used condition, when I did finally inspect the blade there was a chipped tooth and worse, two of the teeth are bent out of alignment so i don’t know if its worth cleaning in this case. I will be inspecting and cleaning whatever new blade I get from time to time.

Thanks for all the feed back.

So it sounds like a combination blade would be good regardless of brand?
