comment Benutzung von “nichtsdestotrotz” / “nichtsdestotrotz” usage
Remark: I once have also read that “nichtsdestoweniger” itself was created as a malapropism of another word or word construction, but I can't find anything about that right now. I wonder if someone else has heard similiarly and can give background on that.

People also use “Justierungsschraube”!

mentioned that “justierschraube” is indeed way more common, added possible explanation

@OliverSalzburg In such cases I intrepret it as: Google didn't try to correct your spelling, but rather suggested to look up a synonymous word with more results.

@Em1 Yeah, but in this case: It isn't a special name for a screw of a given type, but rather a name for a screw of a given function, viz to adjust. So, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Even if so, one could just look up any differences at a screw-specializing site -– but then it isn't a question about German anymore. All in all, this question is pretty much googleable. One particular dictionary or encyclopedia may fail, but in this case, obvious options of encyclopedias and dictionaries listed both entries, obviously meaning the same.

Notice how google didn't say “Did you mean: …”.

Having said that, I'd prefer “Justierschraube” because it sounds more natural and is easier to pronounce.

It would be helpful for people to know which resources you found to not provide much information, so they won't be suggested to you again. Also, you could add a bit more of information on what you expect.
