With the lever loose, tight the two screws in a way that the blade is free and can be moved in any direction. The lever will lock the blade and it should be tighten "all the way".

I have not been able to find any documentation on how tight the blade should be.
It sounds like most holders have flat surfaces that clamp the blade, which I
would think would have very different tightness requirements. Any ideas from
someone who uses this type of holder on how the two screws should be set?
