Getting the perfect shed on my Jane Loom

I have a Jane 70 on a stand, and it seems I am always tweaking the shaft height to figure out where is the best shed.  How big should the shed be on a Jane loom, and how high should the shafts be set at rest?  I note that my floating selvedges are not in the centre of my shed, and wonder if I have the shafts set too high.  When the shafts are down there is about 1/2 inch between the bottom of the shaft and the elastic cords.

Below is the picture of my shed on the Jane Loom.
