PC dovetail jig help

I have the PC dovetail jig. The instructions aren't clear to me--on the router bit depth guide, is the adjustment knob supposed be 3/8" deep from the bottom of the template? See page 8 here...... http://www.rockler.com/tech/RTD10000210AA.pdf

I know others have this, and I make great sloppy joints. From what I read in the manual it's supposed be 3/8" deep. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? I measured mine this morning and its a bit shy of that. Any help would be appreciated.

I measure from the bottom of the template , I use a pair of calipers , its makes measuring exact and easy . I use them for adjusting the side guides for laying out the pin and tail boards too .
