Are you referring to them when they are inaccurate? Or perhaps when one might be hard headed about using the correct reading since its what the calculations tell you is correct? I suspect maybe both
I suspect you are correct. Anyone metering by calculations only is missing the adjustment phase. I have 2 100 PSI gauges. When one reads 100, the other reads 92. A little trial and error can go from the might be close to tuned to peak performance.
In the t shirt launch coemptition, we did some calculations, and then took a bunch of measurements. Which works better? 2 inch, 2.5, inch 3 inch, 4 inch? 5 feet, 6 feet, 7 feet 8 feet? 30 PSI, 40 PSI, 50 PSI, 60 PSI? We have a stack of graphs from tests and picked a solution that can literally hit any area of the Rose Garden Arena, including the back row of the 300 section.
We guessed the long 2.5 inch barrel would be the best one. I even gave it the best paint job. We were wrong. Without testing, we wouldn't have known.
Is your mix at the peak? Have you tested?
