If you don't have enough sense to use enough tension, the timing might fluctuate. This actually takes a little thinking and maybe some small amount of trial and retrial to get set correctly, unlike your no-brainer "lock the timing, one size fits all" timing setting.

For accuracy, locked timing is worse than a stopped clock- a stopped clock is at least right twice a day...
