Looks good. Keep us posted!!

I got to thinking about teeth per inch and so on. Whereas the small teeth of a bandsaw load up fast with soft metal thereby being better done with a few teeth per inch blade, I'm thinking the more teeth, like your eighty toothed would be easier and less likely to grab in the soft metal than say a forty tooth.

I can see also that the folks that turn the blade around to cut plate get adequate cutting without the grab effect of a tooth coming hard on the metal. It's more of a grazing cut.

I expect every aspect of that particular blade has been chosen for the specific need and will work well. Hopefully it comes with directions..
