Hedge trimmer rattling


wherebee

Question

I've got a shitty electric hedge trimmer which is a stand in until I can get a proper cutter cheap.  It rattles now when cutting, so that it doesn't cut well and jams a fair bit on branches, not even thick ones.

I can't see any loose screws or holding nuts.  

Any ideas?  Dangerous?  Or fixable?

Sharpen the blade, if there are any adjustment screws on the blade bar (probably not) tighten those, use a thicker than normal oil to reduce the rattle a bit and give it some lubrication probably about all is worth doing for a cheapie.
