I was fiddling with setting today. 
I noticed that raising the blade up or down changes the reading of set on the gauge.
It doesn't take much to change the reading 5 or more thousands

So are you setting against the tooth tip or on the body of the tooth?  So with the Turbos, drop the band and set against the teeth tips?

I'll check about raising or lowering the blade changing measurements.  Are the dial indicator feet flat or dished?

Still setting the full tooth.
With the turbo there is just more distance from the tip of the tooth to the base of the gullet. Thus the gullet being lower on the plate.

The setter feet are flat. I have the same setter you just got

My setter foot flat too. The height difference affecting apparent set measurement must just have to do with minor irregularity in the flatness of the band and the ability of the setter clamp to squeeze that all flat.  There shouldn't be any difference in set measurement with the band up or down a little otherwise. Admittedly all part of the setting process, getting the right set.  But the height does have to do with how much flex (over-bend) exists in the metal above the clamp and how much over-bend is needed to change the set. I think that a lower position in the clamp means less over-bend and a tighter variation (precision) in the actual set of the teeth, but I cant prove it.
