How do you put the replacement blade on the shaft?

replacing a blade takes a lot of practice and the right tools so unless you want to bugger up your stick, it would be a good idea to take it to a shop and get it done for a couple bucks(plus the cost of a blade)...if you want to do it on your own you'll need the right glue and a torch. the amount of heat depends if you have a composite shaft or (unlikely) an aluminum one. using the torch keep the flame visible(orange or red or whatever) and roast the end of the shaft like a hotdog. constantly move it right to left while rotating slowly. check every couple of seconds by trying to pull out the blade. once out put some glue in thin strips on all 4 sides of the blade and a little inside the shaft. heat the glue on the blade a little and shove that thing up there
