    I have a 10 year old Wave and the blade screw has loosened up. The screw rotates when opening the blade. I have a security Torx bit and plan to Loctite the screw to keep it tight. Do you folks recommend blue or red Loctite? Is it possible to overighten and jam the blade? Anything to watch for when doing this?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Blue Loctite should work. But don't use much -- just a dab from a toothpick, maybe. And don't overtighten or you'll make all the tools on that pivot too stiff to open.
