position of the screw
Does anyone know in which case the position of the screw should be changed

The two holes are slightly different distances from the centre, so you'd use one hole for thicker wires and the other for thinner wires. The further hole can cause overlapping wraps on wire smaller than 26AWG if you're not careful.

Is it true that if I use 28awg or thinner I need to change the position of the screw?

I think that there is a further hole for thicker wires, and closer to the thinner wires, but I do not know the boundary of ga (awg) when changing the position of the screw

I found that 28-gauge was easier to work with after I moved the screw when I got mine (when the Coilmaster V3 first came out). It used to come with the screw in the "fat" position, but that was almost three years ago and I don't know how they're shipping them these days. (It's still easy to use with 26-gauge even with the screw in the "skinny wire" position if you ever decide to up your wire thickness. 24-gauge, though, will mean moving the screw again.)

Note: the screws are a VERY tight fit and the little driver is just barely enough to do the job. And the driver tip used to be very slightly oversized, so getting it into the screw the first time required some effort.

on my specimen are both holes of the same distance from the center.
it is impossible to make a coil with a wire less than 28 ga
