    Hi Frank

    Welcome to the forum. There are a few of us here from the UK. Indeed, there are even some of us from the midlands .

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        Welcome to the group Frank. Just so you and Gill know, my son, Reade, was born in England. I was stationed at a place called RAF Chicksands close to Bedford (I actually lived in Ampthill) with the U.S. Air Force from 1964-67. He was born at South Ruislip base hospital so he has dual citizenship. That was a long time ago but I still have fond memories of my stint in the U.K. Once again, hope you enjoy the group Frank.

              I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

              We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

              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?
