The Freud 30T GLRs (LM74/LM75) use extremely tight side angles to give a more polished edge. It works well for the polished edges, but the same characteristics that cause the polish also cause more heat, which can lead to burning in thicker woods, thus the 1” recommendation.

An 18T will chomp through really thick would with less resistance, but also a rougher cut. Depending on your saw, you might find that a 24T rip blade would serve you well, giving a decent cut with no burning.

FWIW, Cripe Distribution offers the German made Delta Industrial 35-611 18T for < $30 on Ebay if you want to try one.
