If the deck is way out of whack, that indicates the whole carriage isn't
level -- the rim is folded evenly so that makes an easy place to
measure--if you're anal, measure from the top of the deck.

And, of course, the simplest way to quickly check that a blade tip or
shaft isn't bent or similar is to rotate the blade tips past a given
point and check the clearance to the deck lip at that point--if each end
isn't the same height, there's something wrong to fix.
