    it should be snug, with just a bit of resistance. A rubber mallet should b adequate. The set screw's dimple suggests the fit isn't snug enough on th shaft. The idea is that the shaft and the coupler need to fit tight enough to maintain a common center.

    A good prop shop should be able to resolve any fit issues...only drawback is you have to pull the shaft & take it to the shop.
