• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

I don't have one, but I do have feeler gauges and, as an (ex-) aircraft engineer I'd feel happier about using those to set fork clearance.

Regular paper is around 4 thou thick.

Thanks, Kevin. I did measure a piece of printer paper at that, but I thought Post Its might be different. My first 400 Day has been running a few hours now, even though it certainly isn't in beat. I'll leave it overnight before I put the motion works on - I've taken advice from this forum to check it out before adding extra friction.
