I can’t find anything locally anywhere except an 18T framing or a 100T plywood/veneer. The search engines for the big box stores are so bad that I can’t separate out the 5 1/2” blades, I have to search all 940 entries of 10, 12, 14, jig saw blades, etc.

I have a Ryobi 10mm arbor and it looks like I’m going to have to upgrade to a 7 1/4” inch corded in order to have any choice in blades. Any thoughts?

I had a 19.2V cordless Carftsman that uses 5 1/2” blades. The Sears web site shows 12 options in 5 1/2” and 5 3/8” sizes, although some of them have 5/8” arbors.

I typed in “5 1/2 saw blade” in Google and got plenty of choices…
Do remember that that the weaker the saw the thinner the blade needs to be. Especially Cordless—which must have very thin kerf.
