OK. now I know what a loop guage is.  I never heard it called that.  I have one on my Jacque.  I use shims of different thicknesses (card, paper etc.) to bring it parallel to the board edge.  Mine has two wing type nuts and the whole guage can just be loosened and lifted off, so there is plenty of room for shims. Hope that helps.
