It’s a craftsman cordless CS circular saw, here is the link to one I got:
Stock blade has only 24 tooth, from what I read I need about 90 tooth for cutting laminate flooring.
Do you think Lowes or Home Depot would have:
7.25 inch blade
with 16 mm arbor
with at least 90 tooth
Any advice is greatly appreciated, I also have a Sears Hardware store near me, but they are smaller than a Home Depot or Lowes, so I think their stock selection is smaller.

For a saw, the arbor is the shaft or spindle that turns.
For a saw blade, you need to know the size of the arbor so you get the right size hole in the blade.
In this context, 16mm = 5/8 inches; a very common arbor size for 7 1/4″ saw blades.

The ‘arbor’ on a power saw is the shaft diameter onto which the blade attaches. Your 16 mm (.625″) arbor is a standard size for a 7 1/2″ saw. I use an 80 tooth plywood blade for cutting laminate flooring with no problems. Good luck with your project.

The arbor is the shaft that the blade is mounted to. The size of the arbor is the diameter of this shaft.Therefore, the hole in the center of the blade should be sized to fit a 16mm shaft. This is a common size (5/8 inch). The 7.25 inch refers to the outside diameter of the blade. This is also a common size. The number of teeth refers to (You guessed it) how many teeth are milled into the blade. You should have no problem finding this blade. You know, it wouldn’t be so confusing to us all if the manufacturers of these tools would specify either inch measurements or metric measurements. One or the other–not both!

If someone has a Craftsman anything…The only place to get replacement parts is ….There are other name brand blades that will work on a Craftsman saw….Take the blade with you and look at Lowes and H/D Be sure thae balde you were to get is exactly like the sears blade except for the no. of teeth
