I think the toe-in screws where meant to be for quick adjustments similar to an adjusting barrel brake levers/calipers. Easier and faster than resetting the toe via the actual shoe housing. Remember, these were designed for the "elite" race teams who don't have time to hassle with constant adjustments. I don't recall the exact chronology of the deltas (mine are 2nd gen excluding protos) but I don't think the conical washers and the toe-in screws where introduced at the same time. Could be wrong but Campy was pretty well known for introducing changes mid-run and not informing anyone. I know they introduced a longer(larger?) washer later in the run to compensate for narrower rims. Anyway, they are pretty to look at but I'd love to upgrade them to new Records or Mavic SSCs and just put them on the mantel.
