In this case it won’t help as the pin extends out of the bore on both ends.

I can see a benefit to your idea but as you may already know it becomes less viable as the diameter of the pin decreases. According to my calculations at 3000 psi hydraulic pressure there will less than 600 lbs. of force on this 1/4” diameter pin. I doubt it would have moved.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

The plate the unit came with is cut at 5 degree intervals. It seems that would satisfy most jobs. I did however buy a “blank” plate from Kalamazoo that has no cut notches. I can use a rotary table to cut any desired notches on the blank.

With a plate notched with five notches how would you do a four or six sided cut, it seems that width the five plate your only able to ,make cuts divisible by five.
