I recently bought one of those adjustable ruler / cutting guides for cutting tapered bands with. Got tired of using the Allen key to loosen the screws so I bought some thumb screws and spaced them off with washers so I can quickly and accurately adjust the whole thing. I make one cut and flip my band material and make another cut and so on and so forth. If anyone is interested in the details the screws are M3 the thumb screws were advertised as for use in computer cases and the washers were bought at my local Lowe's hardware.

If anyone sees a flaw in my method please let me know. I should mention that you don't need to crank on the screws to set them just mild pressure works fine.

Great mod.

The problem that I see coming from the way I use this ruler.

When I cut one set of bands I flip the ruler and cut the next one.

And after that I flip the ruler again and cut the next one.

It is much more convenient to me than flipping the rubber.

I believe that is the reason that they made these bolts flush with surface.
