Mine must be creeping very slowly as I can still tension a blade and it must be 40yrs old and never been slackened off for storage. :)

Mis read you Jo - as in blade only goin on in two directions and not two planes  :facepalm:

I have never seen one of those go bad over time - but like you, I don't enjoy 'holding them in the wrong direction' .... And like you I now have two never designs that are somewhat 'Wonky'  :wallbang:

That Sandvik one that Dave showed is great! I got one at work from McMaster Carr and I liked it so much I had to get one for home as well.

I bought a couple of the Lenox high tension frames awhile ago.  After using the ubiquitous tube frame with the wing nut for decades, they are so much nicer.  Highly recommended. 

If unfamilair, the the silver grey bit atop the hand grip rotates.  Its gives a bit of leverage and lets you really tension the blade

They have changed over the years, here is a picture of my mine.
8 turns on the crank makes the blade fiddle string tight.
