Thanks guys. I'm not sure what the blade is other than a 1/4". Any way to figure out what brand it is? I'm planning to get some new blades in various thickness/TPI but I don't want to get rid of this one if its a good blade.

The story of the saw is the guys bought it from has been sitting on it for about five years and never used it. He says he purchased it off a local guy by him who buys items people return to the local Sears and then sells them himself. He had bought the BS and a Craftsman 12 1/2" planner from this guy and the planner was still in the box. It's most likely the original blade based off that story I just wasn't sure if they're ever marked somehow so I could tell
