I do a lot of ripping on my Unisaw. I usually don't crosscut much on it, I use my sliding miter for that. I have a Freud 40 tooth and it does fine, just seeing if there is something better. I am starting to get to use a lot more nicer woods such as maple, walnut, mahogany, etc...(yes I have used mostly pine and ply because I'm cheap and couldn't afford the nicer stuff before).
What is a good, affordable saw blade and tooth count for ripping? I know I will get a lot of different opinions and will make my judgement on reviews and research. Thanks.
