Measuring oil viscosity levels?

The book says to change it
every 8 hours of operation or 6 months, whichever comes first.
I'm planning on adding
synthetic oil, which should last longer than conventional oil and give
the engine more protection. One way to know for sure when the oil needs
to be replaced is to measure the viscosity with a new device I saw in Farm
Show magazine called Lubricheck. I'm not sure how well it works,
but it might pay for itself in a few years at only 40 dollars.
