Bingo! This jives with what I experienced.  And it's funny because I had
the same initial reaction as well: "Hey, this valve sucks!  Where's that
legendary fine control that George guy touted?"  I turned the pressure
down to 5 PSI for weeks until I figured out the set screw trick.

(Sorry I'm not paying as much attention to the APD messages lately; was
out on business last week, came home to 200 messages, etc etc).
