What would be the best 10" blade to use on my Craftsman compound miter saw for cutting crown, window and door moldings.

I've used the 40t carbide blade that came with it to cut some door molding and it seemed to work out fine. Would a 60t or 80t be better for the fancier moldings? The saw blade descriptions in catalogues are kind of cryptic.

How about the best brand for the money? I can't spend $100 on one blade.

Thanks for any advice,

Tom

the more teeth, the finer the cut will be. also, when cutting any cut where a very fine cut is desired, the slower the cut you make, the better the results. this is espically important when wirking with thin stock, or where there is a fine edge to cut.
