I must agree Diesel - on all counts above.
Everyone needs to stop thinking about it so hard. The ideal specific gravity of any given glaze is dependant on your personal preference. It's something you record so you can repeat your results, or troubleshoot.
And unless you like headaches, stick to one system of measurements: Imperial or Metric. Combining them, or constant conversions between the two are a good way to mess with an otherwise good day in the studio.
If you weigh out 100g of glaze, just add about 50 or 60 ml of water (the measurement is close enough to the same number of grams at room temperature) and its usually enough to get it through the sieve. The glaze will likely be a bit thick for practical application, but you can then add water after that to make the consistency you want.

In my experience you still have to dremel off the 3 points from the tripod ceramic stilts. One potter I know, teaches students to put 3 small dots of wax on the base, for the 3 stilt points to rest on. This stops the stilts fusing on to the base and you are left with 3 neat unglazed dots. Trickiest thing is to align the stilt on the dots and then place it all on the shelf without moving the stilt. Works if you can do it!
