That's why Jack Schmidling scratches the tick mark in the plate and and adjustment knob - as the factory setting. Line it up and you are at factory settings. Tighten from there and note the change from factory and you are all set. If you were to take it fully apart you might have issues, but I've never done that.And this is the way it should always be, but I will add;THIS. You can say that you adjust for the crush, but without knowing your gap and adjusting from there, it can be tough. Set a gap, check the crush, look at your crush, if it looks wrong, check your gap. Stuff happens, gaps can move, always check the crush, but know your usual gap.
knowing the gap setting once you find the correct crush for your system helps to take out the guess work shold you ever have to send your mill in for repair (like I did) or if it gets dropped, or anything happens that might change the setting.
