Is the hex screw the only thing that holds the blade in the saw?
--Yes.
Is the hex screw a replacement for one that was original?
--It's the original.
Does the point of the hex head screw protrude far enough to push against the blade?
--Yes.
Is the problem that the vibrations of the saw loosen the hex screw?
--Yes.
If so, might try wraping one wrap of teflon tape around the screw threads.
--The screw is too small to wrap. I'll try some liquid "Tread Lock".
Thank You.
