Not if you had the bottom edges of the nut on a features evenly. But it sounds like it's not a normal thing and I can see it would be a very rare you'd get a placement like that.

As I said "reliable" placements in this mode are rare..... almost unheard of.
The brand of nuts with three major axis is Omega Tri Nuts, single cable, quirky but functional, more for
sandstone than quartsite perhaps ?

if you use a grinder on the metal it could change the properties (heating then cooling) maybe a hand file instead?

I think you would be OK grinding aluminium. I could be wrong.

Filing takes about 5mins per nut, and its very easy to avoid going too far. I wouldn't worry about overheating with a grinder but would worry about the serious laziness issues it brings up.

If you're having problems thinking about where to file, the top back and bottom back corners will need most metal removed. No metal need be removed from the top front or bottom front corners. (It's your choice as to whether you file both the left and right faces or only one (as bomber says, there are only two planes involved hence only one angle between them)

As the other dude said (forget who), getting rid of metal at the bottom back can help (but don't excavate the braze on RP's!)

Also, don't get carried away! I find HB's too offset, and try to go about halfway to that from a straight nut.

Also, silly tri placement hex nuts were a stupid gimmick (like those strange nuts with gear teeth for stacking together). Endless piss taking at the crag will result if you custom recreate these dud designs
