Low pressure

I dunno about the OP, but I set mine to cut in at 95-100.

Reason is, a regulator often "loses" about 5 PSI, so if you need constant 90 (like many tools), you need the input pressure to stay at or above 95.

Switch adjustment

See the pages on this site about pressure switches to help determine this, Steve.

If yours is not adjustable, and I was unable to get any information on it, then you can replace it with one that is adjustable.

The question is, why do you want to increase the normal cut out of the compressor. Doing so many be dangerous, and if you run the compressor at higher pressures than those its designed for, that has maintenance issues too.
