I've not used a bendmaster before, but at first glance it appears the adjustment screw is directly under the string and before the saddle. Is this correct? If so, how is one expected to adjust it when string is at full tension?
That's it - not rocket science, is it!! Just fiddly and irritating, because each time you change string gauge/make, you go through the performance again... that said, generally once set, it is rock solid!! You're gonna need more springs too, possibly - I've found that with 11s 4 springs is about right and it's a bit fiddly to get the bridge floating properly as well, but no more irritating than an early FR, or so I'm told!
Make sure that the saddles are in the right order, too - they are non-adjustable and are set to the fretboard radius, so if you want to change the action to be higher, you use the 2 bridge posts.
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.

In the long run I was thinking of making the bridge set not to float. So if I continue to use the same brand/gage of strings hopefully I won't have to adjust intonation often (although I am obsesive with tuning and intonation, so we'll see)
Can't wait to get it all set up and crank it up loud this weekend! Good thing the neighbors don't live to close
