    Try to set it for the 10 o'clock position. Should give you about 50% RH.

    50% is a bit dangerous, cos need to take into account +/- 5-10%

    for me i set to 2 o'clock, my range usually 40-45%

    It should be 45-55, so 50% +/- 5-10% is good.

    Set it too low, and you risk damaging the rubber and lubricants in the lens.

    i mean my range for my dry cabinet is usually 40-45% when i switch to 2 o'clock

    the recommended range is like you say 45-55%

    so for my range of 40-45% its actually within the 45-55% after u +/- 5-10%

    if you set to 50%... if u add 10%, thats actually 60%... which is out of the recommended range.

    And with your 40%, you minus 10%, you're at 30%.

    Jus take a look them everytime u get home wun hurt much rite? Adjust it accordingly if u have to. Will it really matter if ur gears are in too low RH or too high RH for couple of hours (be it 30% or 60%)? if it does, then i suppose u got to bring a dry box out when u are out for ur photo shoot.
    Right?

    When I bought it new back then, I turned the knob all the way clockwise for it to go down till 40%, then I turned the knob back CCW to one o'clock position and it has been that way since and my reading is always at 45% in my room temperature of 25deg.

    For those analog units, you need to trial and error and keep testing. With and without equipment load, it can differ.
