A little more than just enough fo tthe paper to not be cut. You should be able to hold the spur gear still, and rock the clutch bell back and forth a tiny bit. It's called "setting your gear lash".

i run the paper between the gears and roll the gears back and forth making the gear mesh as tight as possible without cutting the paper...
