p6 thumb is a small period-6 thumb spark oscillator that was found by David Eppstein on June 26, 2000.[1]

It is the smallest known period-6 sparker that is not delayed; only unix is smaller, which has cells on its leading edge for two generations. Because of this, it is commonly used in higher-period hasslers.

The p6 thumb has occurred semi-naturally in a dimer form.
