21 , those blades can be sharpened , Just make sure that you stop using the blade when it gets just a bit more difficult to cut metal like a hot knife through butter.  If you find that you had to push a bit hard (or more than softly) on the blade remove it and send it to the guy that sharpens carbide wood saw blades.  Make sure you need less than five teeth replaced before sending it in .  It cost me about $20.oo a tooth to replace them .  Ideally you will not need any new teeth if you stop cutting intime .

What brand is your plasma setup?   Don't you have an exhaust fan for under the table? that makes our setup a lot cleaner while cutting.

I have read there is not enough side clearance to regrind them. I will have to check into that.
I designed and built the table years ago. My first try at cnc and servo motors so it was a challenge. It just has a hypertherm 45 so it will only cut 1/2 inch and a candcnc digital thc. I did build a plenum with a furnace blower that will remove the smoke, but have never made the ductwork to run it outside so I rely on a exhaust fan in the back wall of the shop. It doesn't get used that much so I just keep putting off making the ductwork.

I've had an Evolution steel cutting circular saw for about 12 years.  It's a great tool.  Loud and messy but sure makes a nice cut.

I just got my Evolution Rage3 and it throws a lot more hot chips at me then the other one, but it can do compound cuts in steel. Basically a slow speed miter saw. The blade will cut steel, aluminum, wood, & plastic pretty good. Plus I got the diamond blade for bricks, stone, & tile. Have to use my grinding face shield with this one.
