    I always sand the both sides of both ends of any new blade I use. They come thru with oil on them and it will collect on the screws so they need to be cleaned some times too. Sanding the blades will elliminate the problem for sure....

    I find that the fingernail sanding sticks like my wife uses work great to clean the ends of the blades off. Each one lasts a long time and they are not expensive. I sand all four sides of the ends until the blade is shiny.

    They can also be used in light sanding in thin long openings.

    Something Ray taught me --

    Take a 2 X 3 inch long piece of 3/4 inch thick pine. Use a 7/32nd drill and drill two holes about an inch apart. Screw the set screw into on hole and the thumbscrew into the other hole until the clamping surfaces are just flush with one face of the wood. Place...

    I have a marble tile that I put a sheet of sandpaper on and then run my clamps across the paper from time to time. The marble is very flat and it helps me make sure to keep the clamps plumb.

    If you've taken the set screws out of the clamps, make sure to reapply some blue loctite to the threads before putting them back in.

    The blades sometimes have a thin layer of oil. This may cause the blade to slip out of the clamp. Sanding the end of the blade should help with this, but you may also have to clean off the blade clamp and thumb screw....

    Also, the blade holders (the aluminum part) maybe out of square from over tightening. A simple replacement.

    Yes, rough the ends of the blade clamp screw a bit. Shouldn't take much, just a scuff with some sandpaper. They must remain flat so that you get contact across the full face of the Also, do you clean the ends of your blades before inserting them into the clamps? If not, that will also help a lot....

    Blade coming loose too often
    Seanathair
    I have a five year old DW 788. My issue is that the blades are coming loose too often, sometimes at the top, sometimes at the bottom. The threads on the thumbscrews look good (not crushed). Should I rough up the contact points? I usually tighten the blade so it's at a "3" or "3 1/2"...

    Welcome to the group and while I have no experience with that saw, I would say the price is about right for a used Dremel. I looked at some US models a few years ago and the new ones were running about double that amount if I am doing the currency exchange correctly in my head.

    Feel free...
