As the pads wear they get farther from the rotor. By adjusting the pad position screws on the caliper you are restoring the pads to their original position in relation to the rotor. The caliper arm retains its' home position at the start of it swing. If you adjust the pads by using the barrel adjuster on the brake lever, the caliper arm is moved away from the home position. When the brake lever is squeezed you potentially can move the lever past its' normal swing to the point that it will bind.
