I loaned my Delta 12" CMS to a friend to cut a bunch of base moulding (plastic and wood) for his bedroom, halls and bathrooms. When I got it back, the blade had a lot of white plastic on it, so I spent an hour or so cleaning it, only to find about 8 carbide teeth missing. I am sure he didn't do it cutting base and cove moulding; the blade is one I have had in the saw for a long time. Must have happened on my watch but it was not something I noticed until I cleaned it.
Question is, what blade do you recommend (# of teeth, brand, etc.)? I just use the saw every once in a while when I am cutting baseboard or crown moulding.
