The blades have a drop built into them. As the blades are rotated at a fast speed centrifugal force tries to lift the outer ends to be in line with the mounting point. That is the reason you see the bright spot on the outside of the blade bolt.The photo of used blades by DesertEagle71 show the origin of problem I had. The clean spot on the blade around the bolt means it was rubbing the blade holder.
