      Tricia -- So sorry to hear that your basement was flooded. So glad that you had help when you needed it. Hope your wood dries quickly. Did it harm any of your tools or projects?

        Good everything came out OK, but that's a tough way to start the day. Nice to have a helpful BIL handy!

            G'day Tricia,
            We don't have that problem here, as houses don't have basements. Glad your BL was available and there was no lasting damage.

              When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

              Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

              Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

              Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
