Thanks everyone!

I watched the little one during the day.

There's a guy over at JLC who makes the Fein blades. They are actually better quality and about $15 a blade. I think I bought about $200 worth of blades last time, and I'm only on my second one.

We always use a small v-notch. I think a gallon does 2-3 sheets if I remember correctly. If the ceiling is open below, caulk the joints so glue doesn't run on anything on the floor below. Use screws...
