I tend to cut a 1/16th maybe more. You also need to make sure your infeed and outfeed tables are level with the cutting deck. I have been know to cut more then a 1/16 often I fact. Typically I dont worried to much about blade life. For a dewalt 734 the blades are like 30 bucks. I could be wrong on that but its close. You will know when they are getting dull it takes about 10 min to sharpen them.
Unless your running 300 board foot a day I wouldn’t worried to much about it. If you are get a helical head for it
