Default Bandsaw Blades?

I just got my Wen band saw. I would love to know what blades you guys recommend for making smooth cuts. Hopefully using this to start making segmented blanks and such. The blade that came with is a 7tpi 1/2 inch. It takes a 62" blade.

Thanks

Go to the Timber Wolf web site Timber Wolf® blades from 1/8” to 1” for every cutting application; scroll cutting, curve cutting, ripping, cross-cutting, resawing and milling.. You can order 62" blades from them and they are one of the premier makers of band saw blades.

Great to know about them, but I am looking for advice on which blade to get for the smoothest cut. I will probably buy from them. Any opinions on the blade itself? More teeth less teeth? Hooked, normal?

A general rule is...the more teeth...the smoother the cut. I use mostly a 1/4" wide blade.

If you need info on blades contact timberwolf, tell them what kind of wood (green/dry) thickness, and they will recommend what style blade to use 😎
