Just talked to a blade sharpening service. They recommended an 80T Hi-ATB (30+°) and 0° or negative hook. They say that is what their customers use successfully. This would be inline with the Freud recommendation which was a 38° Hi-ATB with a -2° hook.

Popular Tools lists that blade in thin and regular kerfs. They say next to the thin kerf (model LM1080X) max cut 1”. Presumably that specification was experience based.

This article in PFM Production (PFM= Picture Framing Magazine) also talks about it; it appears to recommend an ATB/R blade: http://www.pfmproduction.com/pdfs/PFMP_Spring05/PFMP_Spring05_Blades.pdf.
