I am purchasing new blades for it and considering ordering the mini carbide bit set (Makita D-17239 3-1/4" Planer Blades - Carbide Mini Blades & Set Plate) I also notice that you can order replacement Mini blades only and they are available with three different angles. 35, 50, and 65 degrees. My question is how would I decide which to order. I'm assuming that the 35 degree would be best for soft woods such as pine and the higher numbers would be best suited for hardwoods such as maple, oak, etc. Is this correct or can you give any advice that would assist me with the selection?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
