I have followed the frequent advice on here and ordered a bunch of blades from Tuffsaws which arrived about half an hour ago. Cannot comment on the quality yet ( though the welds look excellent ) but the delivery time was very fast.

The main thing you get from Ian at Tuff Saws is individual advise and attention to your needs.

Ian is always willing to go that extra mile to make sure he supplies blades that will give you best performance on your particular machine, so if you are in doubt tell him what your main workload is and ask him for advise, this is not restricted to wood saws either.
When having problems cutting particular metal stock (1000+ items) he went out of his way to send me not only the blades he thought best for the material I was cutting but a selection of others to trial for comparison.
