Oval Thumb Angle

Post by deanchamp » June 19th, 2022, 1:30 pm

In the Mo fitting system, there is no mention of the angle of the oval thumb, how it is calculated and its relationship to lateral pitches.

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks.

Thanks but the Wiki only covers drilling oval thumbs, not the oval angle itself and how that affects lateral pitches.
