OK, when I bought it they told me to use a blowtorch to release the glue when I changed the blades. And to use a metal adhesive for the new ones.

You want locktight, it’s pretty much supper glue, you put a little on the threads before fitting the studs or nuts. Any decent iron monger or the like should have it, it comes in different grades. I don’t use it on my chipper, but see no reason why you couldn’t.

Great thanks I got some of that.
