    If I need 160ml of 10wt I can use 80ml of 15 and 80ml of 5 right?

    No. I did have the calculation you need to work it out but it’s years since I worked with oils and I can’t find it.

    Toy’s formula seems to stack up
    .66666666×7.5 + .33333333×15 = 10ish

    Actually thinking about it I’m in no rush for these forks and I need to order some other stuff might just order some 10 while I’m at it.

    Remember – weight does not = viscosity so one mans 10wt may be thicker than another man’s 15wt.

    Plenty of threads on various forums kicking around on the issue.
