A tip or three...

1. Try lower speeds--some material/blade combos actually cut better at lower speeds.

2. Keep the blade moving--don't concentrate all the cutting in the middle of the blade. It will overheat and lose its temper, then go dull quickly.

3. Clear dust frequently. Dust holds heat and will cause more friction where you've already cut when it builds up.

I guarantee your blades will last longer. I had to spend a few extra bucks on blades to figure all this out a number of years ago.
