Oval Nestabilities - Information and Sizes

OVALS

Ovals are a little different than circles. For a start there are two sets of ovals:

Classic and Petite.

They not only have a different amount of scallops, they are also different in shape. The Petite shape with 37 edges is more oval shaped than the Classic that has 22 edges. You could describe them as the Classic Scallop being a rounded oval and the Petite being a longer narrower oval.

The Largest die in the Classic Ovals measures approx. 4" x 3.1/l6"
The Largest die in the Petite Ovals measures approx. 4.75" x 3.75"

Therefore, you need the right Standard Oval to fit the right Scallop Oval

What a wonderful article, I was looking at all the Nesties the other day on a website, and gave up - too confusing and not really something you can afford to buy all of them at once, but over a period of time. I will be following you, as this is very interesting and would like to hear more.
