    Would head tram matter?
    If you wanted the hole or other plunge cut on 41 by 33.2 degrees and the head was tilted and nodded would it influence size of the hole?

    People will always argue what is a passable part which is why we get more and more drawing rules to the point a normal human can't know or understand them all.
