Thanks for the advice. When you say until the drops are one second apart, do you mean after the initial stream drips from the stick?
Dip your stick into the thinned paint. when the fluid remaining on the stick breaks up into individual drops, the first few drops should be about 1 second apart. I just thin things approximate then adjust my gun accordingly. Remaining paint goes back into the pot, then repeat the thinning process. This is why I never bother to measure..

measuring with a viscosity cup is similar, dip the cup and measure the time it takes until it forms individual drops but holy heck would I get yelled at if I was sitting there on site with a stop watch 😆.
