Safety Considerations. When making cross-cuts avoid using the miter gouge and fence at the same time. Why? Because when you slide the board towards the saw using a miter gouge the board will most likely bind against the fence. At this point I should remind you this will most likely cause kickback which will throw the board back at you, and at high speed! This is something you definitely don't want to happen – ever. My advice would be to dismount the fence, or set it a decent distance away from the board.
Obviously, the easiest way to know which blade fits your table saw would be to consult the instruction manual. Also, use some common sense. There is a finite amount of space inside the arbor, so you can't use just any blade. The space is also limited with the presence of a blade guard. Speaking of the arbor, the central arbor hole on most table saw blades is 5/8 inches in diameter, but then again, there are exceptions to that rule. If the diameter and the arbor are supported by the saw, you are on the right track.
Blade RPM. The maximum speed of a blade is usually expressed in RPM (revolutions per minute). One thing you need to look for is the speed of the table saw, which must never exceed the speed of the blade. Blades are designed to rotate at a certain speed, and using it on a table saw which exceeds that speed will cause the blade to break apart due to centrifugal force. This is pretty much everything you need to know about blades. If you decide you want to learn even more about blades and their properties, this should serve as a good base for you to build upon.
