Haven't a clue, it was 'tight'. As it made no difference I didn't see any point quantifying it.

I think that nicely demonstrates the difference in our approach to this
... In the absence of any evidence: I would imagine that your ‘tight’ is in the context of what would be appropriate to hold the cutter in place.
To see any difference on a simple static load test; I would guess that you need at least ten [and possibly a hundred] times more tension than you are effecting. ... Which is one of the reasons why FEA would be so informative.
Further discussion seems pointless; but thanks anyway.
