and yes Paco's site is a very good place for info!
You're missing the fact that WT has no relation to CPS. AE shock oil is in non-linear
values that are totally different than CPS.
For example: Going by Paco's site, Xray 60,000 oil is about 65,000 cps and 10,000 oil is 13,000 cps. To acheive 35,000 cps, you would use 33% of the 60k oil and 67% 10k oil. However, if you assumed that Xray oil was EXACT and 60k was 60,000 cps and 10k was 10,000 cps, then you would use 30% and 70%.
You cannot relate WT to CPS in any way. That calculator is designed for CPS only.
Another example is to check out the values Paco tested for trinity oil. 40 Wt was 505 cps. BUT 45 Wt was 497 cps. Thus the values of the Wt system is in no way precise or linear at all...
