I have set mine to 25*

Have you used the locating pins / ballbearings in the fan hub, as that will make it easier to ensure all the blades are at the same angle.

I used the locating pins ,the fan blades were all replaced a few years ago and apperently i assembled one fan with more or less pitch than the other.
