harbor freight bandsaw feed rate

Question for Willys, qctech, or any other owner of a Harbor Freight metal cutting bandsaw. How do you set the torsion on the spring that controls the feed rate of the blade? The directions just say "not too tight", "not too loose". So how do you know what the correct spring pressure is? Maybe if you just gave me the approximate time it takes you to cut a piece of 2X3 rec. tube (cold rolled, .125 wall) or some similar guideline I can go by. I have no idea if I have this thing running at the right pressure.
