Default Setting up Solo prop

Hey guys,

What tools and method do you use for setting up the pitch and tracking for a solo prop?

The dial numbers are not pitch numbers and I found the supplied chart wasn't accurate, either. I just dial in a number, look at the pitch, if it looks close, tighten the hub and check the rpm's, I keep changing the pitch until I get the rpm's that I want: moki 250: 3700-4000.
A protractor on my table saw helps me get all blades consistent in pitch.
