You mentioned you were getting a little burning. If your fence isn’t exactly parallel with the blade (or very close) you could be slightly binding the blade which will increase your power requirement by several times. The best evidence of binding would be difficulty feeding stock, a burning smell, brown marks on your wood from the blade and sometimes blue marks from excessive heat on the blade. The heat on the blade can be especially bad for thin kerf blades as they’re more likely to be damaged due to the reduced plate strength and inability to absorb the same amount of heat as a blade with a heavier plate.
