Have you done the experiment regarding the orientation of the pins?

I always thought (that I remembered) that the manual said to put the pins in along the grain. That would make sense as in principle wood is anisotropic. So the calibration would be valid only in one direction.

But I have not checked how large the difference is, and thus whether it matters.
I'll check for fun.
