I mean: it's just a screw that screws into the saddle.. I can see how it works if I need to move the saddle closer to the neck, but what do I do if I need to move it away from it? (since unscrewing the tool will just leave me where I started and make no changes).

Let me know if you dont understand what I mean.. it's the last step of my set up and I'm confused (new guitar) Thanks!

it will (should) make changes unscrewing it.

There is a washer around the screw between the last thread and the bridge. This allows the screw to rotate in both directions without coming out.

I'm sorry but I dont get it. I can screw it in until it reaches where the micro tuner sits. I can see a plastic washer in the screw, but I already screwed it all the way in and unscrewed it.

Tremolo type? I have a ZR trem and it has an intonation tool too. You have to loosen a screw on the saddle and it will automatically want to go forward, twisting the tool will make it go the opposite way.

OK, I got it to work. I didnt know about that screw.

But I still cant fix it. I adjust the intonation, but then I have to retune, and then the intonation is off again, and it never stops What am I doing wrong?

its a bit of rinse & repeat.

unfortunately trems are a little more difficult to set up over a fixed bridge. Take it to a tech.

Yeah, let's not learn how to set up our guitars, lets just pay hundreds over the course of years for a simple task.

TS: Everything with trems is, like said above, rinse and repeat. It can take a long time - the first time I completely restrung a floyd rose by myself took me something like 6 hours. Now I can do it in about an hour, going at a leisurely pace. You'll get it eventually, once you understand how it works and you're familiar with it. Just keep with it, and try not to get frustrated.
