Pretty sure that spinning it would be just a little more accurate the using the ruler since there's a bit less space for error?
like if on the bumpy ride to competition, the ruler gets messed up a tiny bit there would be a huge difference...which could cost you a few placings
The ruler itself was firmly hot glued to the stopping rod, so what you stated is not really a problem. I think the problem may be that the threaded rod's thread intervals are not small enough, causing the brake settings to be inaccurate...
