Proper gear mesh adjustment

I cleaned the banjo on my 10L the other day and used cigarette paper that I usually use to bring milling cutters in contact with work between gears when meshed before I tightened them. They sound a bit too tight now.

Is this the correct procedure?

What is the correct thickness of the paper that should be used?

Thanks,
