I've got the upgraded arms that will take a hex key. Tonight I sharpened four knives and had one arm loosen up once (for the first time).

I will say this, with my limited experience with this system, there is a way to tighten these screws. You must "find" the detent while turning the screw. I mean "find" the detent by moving the arm slightly while turning the screw. If the screw is not centered on the detent it will loosen up.

If only the tip is touching, you'd probably want to file a really small amount off the very point so that it makes more contact.

I wonder if this might also rough up the end a bit, resulting in a more secure grip?

Good tip!
