Loose blade

I have a two piece stick, and the blade seems loose, is there any way of tightening it up w/o weakening it?

1 piece of hockey tape across the top and down the sides with a bit of hot glue has worked for me. you may have to experiment with it but it does work

Do you mean like, tape the part that goes into the shaft?

using a heatgun, torch, or even a stove element, remove the blade from the shaft. Take a strip of tape and, depending on how loose the blade was, place the tape along the areas that will be going into the shaft. Reheat the blade and the shaft, insert, wait, enjoy.

ok that didn't work. the shaft just peeled the tape off and made a mess. i just stuck a LOT of glue on there, so we'll see what happens.

Usually this is because the glue isn't even, heat it pull the blade out and take a butter knife and spread the glue evenly.

heat up the shaft before you insert the blade. The shaft expands with the heat and then contracts and holds the blade + tape tightly.

Doesn't sound like you put the tape on correctly. Wrap it across the top, not width wise. Essentially put 1 strip on vertically, so the middle of the tape is at the top of the hosel.

I've seen this done too. Apparently works really well. Some people even say it makes it come out easier but i think thats bs. Either way I'd say give this method another go if you're still having problems.

best way to do this. You have to put glue on the the tape afterwards as well or else it will be hell to ever get it out.

Yup tape works great. I always put a piece of tape over the hosel, never have a blade go loose.

Thin pieces of wood in the shaft work for me. A bt of glue and tape around and there you go.

Take it out, add glue, heat it back up and put it in. Always works for me.
