Table saw blades seem to vary a lot in price and, as well as the blades
being of varying quality, I suspect that some retailers are significantly
better value than others.
I need to replace the 10 inch (254 mm) blade on my table saw with a new one.
Something generic and middle of the road will do; it only has tp replace the
one that came with the machine. Would you recommend a good retailer (either
a common UK DIY store or an online retailer)?
Similarly, would you recommend a particular saw blade manufacturer or even a
specific blade? These must be almost a commodity item.

Bosch blades are good
I've used all of these and find them excellent. Google for a local supplier
A little story.
Many years ago I bought a Bosch pull over mitre saw from Axmimster. At the
time it came with a special offer of a free blade pack.
After a few years I decided I would change the blade. (I don't find these s
aws to be hard on blades) To my surprise I discovered the free blade pack w
as of 10" blades whereas my saw was a 12". I queried this with Axminster wh
o were equally surprised but for different reason. What I had actually orde
red and paid for was the 10" version. Supplying the 12" version was a mista
ke on Axminsters part. It was all history at this stage so they let it sit.
I'd sell the bloody things, complete in their purpose made case, except the
postage cost would be horrendous
Middle of the road and general purpose would be a 42 tooth blade, I use
blades from Wealden which are excellent:
Although the price may be a little more than cheapo blades these blades
can be sharpened, so in the long term are no more expensive. Sharpening
is about a tenner, for which you get a good as new blade as often as you
like. The blade I linked to gives superb results on ply / mdf / particle
board, and is also ok for cross-cutting soft and hardwoods.
