Obviously I look for tin kerfs. I have one for trim level already. Red one with 60 toots, I think Diablo and work well. For framing and not seen trim purpose I use one 24 toots, I do not know what kind. People complain at me how it is to loud. Should I switch to 40 toots for framing purpose. Obvious question is it easier cut trough with 24 or 40 toots? I guess again Freud Diablo would be answer.
Should I use “blade stabilizer”. If yes, what size?

I personally prefer the Frued Tk906 combiation blade. Home Depot has the same blade but has a different number.
They are usually around $50 .
I just picked up two, on sale for $37 each.Stay away from exchange-a-blades at any cost

60 "toots" is a bit high for framing. 24 would probably be your beat bet. Especially for a lot of ripping. If you plan on a good amount of cross-cutting, a 40 "toot" combination blade would be a good choice.

If you had 60 red toots you must have ate a lot of Taco bell that day.

I do trim at last same so much as I do framing. As I said I have a blade for trim level. Just wonder should I use 24 toots or 40 toots when I frame. Btw I'm pro hence not "combinations" here. I use 24 toots long time. I guess I should stick with 24 for framing time.

For framing 24 would be fine.

Do you guys not run 7 1/4" blades for framing? Hell of a lot cheaper and cut quicker as well. They're all I use for flooring. Granted, the thickest material I cut is 3/4" but there's enough capacity for 2x material no problem.

Read up on table saw blades---you do want a combination blade or a ripping blade---that 60 toot blade is a cross cut blade and should not be used for ripping---

combination and ripping blade have a different rake to the toot(s) and room for the long shreds of sawdust created when ripping.

More toot does not make a blade better---not for ripping any way--
