OH DEAR, got my knickers in a right twist. Got this hedge trimmer from an acedemic who said it had seized. No problem--must be blades stuck with rust.
On dismantling the whole thing, it appears that the parts (flat spring clips) for holding the blade ends in place had somehow come adrift---no signs of breakage. Try as i may, i just can't get these ruddy things to go back into place----HELP any B&D experts out there.
Don't know who designed this set up for moving the blades, but it is of very poor engineering design for such a simple job.

Do a search on-line if you have the model number there could be an exploded drawing that may help, getting back to the initial problem if the fault lies with the blades it is possible they are 'glued' together with dried sap, slightly releasing the blade clamping screws and liberally feeding 3 in 1 oil or similar will free it off, remember to retighten the screws after.
I use Bosch. B & D aint what they used to be
