tightening them ‘down’ (clockwise)
actually loosens them up

when they are ‘loosened’
(or turned counter-clockwise)
they get tight against the cutter block
and push the blades tight
to the other side of the block

it’s all ‘backwards’
but it works that way

chrisstef has done what i did too
i have had to grind the ‘cheeks’ of the wrench
to fit into the tight space there
those thin stamped wrenches don’t work for long

and a tap with a hammer
on the end of the wrench towards the fence
can jar them
