    Sorry I wish I could help but I am not a designer. I do remember your first request and yes that was a rather small image. Wishing you all the best.

          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.
