Lockout calibration

I have a relatively simple question: When you calibrate a lockout machine and you find the exact deviance (let's say 2kgs), is it necessary to adjust the screw? Can't you just set the tension 2 kgs higher or lower than before?

You can certainly approach it like that. After the initial calibration of my NEOS 1000, it never needed it again so I was good.

I would calibrate the unit so 50# is 50#, not 54.4#. Reason? You might forget that the unit is pulling 4.4# higher if you are in a rush. You have to re-check the unit at least once a year or every six months. Easier to remember that 50# is 50# in the future rather than having to subtract 4.4# every time you select a ref tension. The kludge will work until you forget why it is there. Would tell someone who askes for 22.7 Kg that you strung it at 20.7 Kg?

Takes 5 minutes (at most) to calibrate it properly. Easy call—spend the 5 minutes (only 3 more minutes than it takes to start this thread and read the responses).

Such a great machine. Hated to sell mine. Might get a Eagnas EAG 300. Similar to Neos. I know....I know....it's an Eagnas

I had an Eagnas (910) and then The MIGHTY 6004. Didn't have to calibrate either (no adjustments).

now i'm wise.

If you're buying used (eagnas), i have the 910 manual (pdf) which is kinda universal.
