Congrats on the new saw, and other goodies!

As far as blades go…the Infinity Super General, Freud Fusion, and the new WWII 48T leave cleaner edges, cleaner crosscuts, and better plywood cuts than the standard 40T WWII. If you’ll be doing more thicker ripping, the WWII 30T would be my choice….very clean ripper, and does a respectable job of most crosscuts. All available in 3/32” thin kerf. You might also consider the Ridge Carbide TS2000….made in the USA, very similar to the 40T WWII, has more carbide than a WWII, but costs a little less (Holbren has it for ~ $90 shipped, use “BT310” discount code for a total of ~ $81 shipped).

You might also consider going with separate rip and crosscut blades for the optimum performance from each.
