Jim,
Next time you surface, loosen the bolts and lower the switch slightly so it is below the surface. When you calibrate after surfacing it will measure the new location. Give it a try, if you like the idea.

Yes, I do that to get the switch out of the way, too, but slipping the "hat" off absolutely insures I don't make a boo-boo. :) Err...another boo-boo...
