    The reason i mention it not because the lockup % bothers me but rather because on Regulars there is less room for the thumb to disengage the lock and the room gets smaller and smaller as the lockup % reaches 100. Even worse when u got a fat thumb.

    How do we know what position the sleeve is in? So the sleeve is not perfectly round? How are we supposed to tell how it is set if there is no marking to tell us?

    Must be a policy change. I had an email stating as such as I have a Sebenza that has like 90% lockup. I will try to find it, but lost many CRK emails when I changed computers many years ago. Nonetheless, if it’s a policy change, it’s a moot point.

    You really don't. It would be trial and error. If you bought a knife say 2000 and never broke it down you would likely see a mark and get the most results. If you have been breaking down regularly you likely have been rotating right along and not see any significant improvement, if any.
    trial & error method-and never had much luck with it. I am much better at finding ways to loose lockup position then gain it :).
    This is totally a guesstiment on my part.

    With how tight the sebenza is you could probably try a few different positions with the front scale off.
