+1 on getting a good blade or two. Your 1-1/2hp motor will benefit from a good thin kerf blade. There are lots of excellent choices…plan to spend ~ $35-$100….Infinity, Forrest, Ridge Carbide, Freud Industrial, CMT, Amana, Tenryu, Leitz, DeWalt PT series…all have some great blades.

A good stiff zero clearance insert that won’t flex is a good idea too…I prefer phenolic or good plywood for it’s stiffness. Get it nice and flush.

You should also consider building a crosscut sled or getting an aftermarket miter gauge…the Incra V27 is a heck of a bargain.
