If you still have one of those old triangular pieces, drill one out so the screw goes through it and put a nut on the other side with a nice thick washer and see if that will hold. I’d look for case hard steel bolt. I’d also install another bolt on the top side, the side with the handle and use that to cinch it all down when I got it tight. If you use the BS on a regular basis, you shouldn’t need to loosen the blade once you get it where you want it. If it set for long periods of time, i’d losen it a little bit maybe 6 wrist turns or so. Something repeatable so you get back to the same tension unless you have one of those meters that tells you the tension.
