This is where I calibrate my own lenses....

This is one of a fair few I did when calibrating ... errrr I the 60mm I think

The crop here shows the final adjustment. Now it is a sharp lens. This particular lens when I started was always soft. The wires were totally out of focus and I could see that the focus was in front of the wire. So I went little by little until it was back focusing and then back until I was happy. Now it is a sharp lens and nails focus every time.

This was the end result and how it should look !

One thing I shall mention..... It is always a good idea to errrrr on the side of slight front focus. This is to counteract focus shift on stopping down, which is now common for most Nikon lenses.

Have fun
