EBB Current pot setting - addendum to the assembly manuals?

edited April 2014 in General

From looking at the posts here (and elsewhere) a lot of new user's initial problems with the Eggbot and Watercolorbot is related to the current setting on the EBB board. Would it be a good idéa to include a step in the manuals to "pre-set" the potmeter to approximately 11 o'clock position (complete travel from 8 to 4) before mounting the board? image
On my two boards (V13) this setting gives a current of approximately 570mA which seems to be a good balance between torque and motor noise & heat.
Once EBB firmware 2.2.3 is validated for use the setting could be automatically checked for by the programs and alert the user of incorrect setting before starting the plot.
