What is the height of the string holes from the bottom of the bridge?
Thanks. What I am thinking is that the distance from the tie block where the string exit to the saddle look like 10mm + ? so for your given hieght (super low 6-6.5 if I read correctly) both of these could be improved. since your tie block isn't high above the holes at this point I am not sure lowering the string holes would help very much, and if you lower the tie block to match drilling the string holes lower than 3mm you leave very little wood in the middle of the bridge once you expose the holes, strong rosewood maybe It'll be fine, but in this case I would convert the bridge to 12 holes, if you look at the pictures you'll the knot pulls the string up at least 1mm if not more. On the other hand if you already mean to remove the bridge then why not make a new one, drill the holes at 3mm, keep the tie block low as you already did, and make the distance from the tie block to the saddle 8mm. so make the tie block wider\move the saddle slot back or a little of both, then I think you will have enough break angle with 6 holes.
