    Hi

    Is anyone running a bm curve 5. Just want to find out the correct depth it should sit in and where you have tuned it to?

    Many thanks

    its sort of halfway

    Just be careful sometimes it comes upside down with max being minimum and 1 being max

    but i played around till i got the bubbles up to the cup and am happy now

    I had to build a stand in my sum to lift it off the floor because initially it was too deep in
    and was over skimming even on lowest setting
