Maths real world application simple problem

I have a circular pipe that is 175 mm in diameter that fits through a stainless steel plate. The pipe fits through a cut out in the plate which has a diameter of 183 mm .

The pipe will fit through the plate with 2mm to spare all round when the pipe is perpendicular to the plate.
I am trying to fit the pipe through the plate at an angle of 22.5 deg.

so it does not fit !

! need to enlarge the hole in an a considered way.

I am not sure what size the new aperture should be or even if it should be a circle or an ellipse

Thankyou guys.

the new hole will be an ellipse.

we'll need the plate thickness to continue.

but honestly in the real world I'd get out a round file and just work the plate by eye until the pipe fits.
Thanks from Country Boy
