Only turn the rod 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time-- wait 20 mins before any more adjustments.
I agree wholeheartedly about the waiting period. I usually give it an hour but it's entirely possible I might be waiting longer than I need to.
A quarter turn at a time though. Wow. Too much. A quarter turn is about the most I'd ever turn it in total from one extreme to the other over the lifespan of the guitar ..... unless somebody had been messing around with it and really really REALLY had it out of whack. A quarter turn is a full 90 degrees of swing on the end of an Allen wrench. That's a lot of adjustment.
I recommend swinging the wrench in increments of 5 or 10 degrees and start from there. If a person didn't know how much was 10 degrees they can think about the six sides of a nut or bolt or the six flat parts on an Allen key. Each flat on the key is separated from the next one by an increment of 60 degrees, so one sixth of that. Put the key in the hole but don't turn it. Take a pic with your phone to note the angle of the key in relation to the guitar. Pull the key out and put it back in on the next flat and take a second pic. The difference in angle between the two pics is 60 degrees. Turn it one sixth of that.
