Mr. Chip Wisdom says:
  • “Don't forget: About 90% of the cuts on the lathe are most successfull with the tool turned sideways. The shavings are ejected away from the turner and you can easily use the tool bevel for proper control.”
  • “When you use the bevel of the tool, it will prevent a deeper cut thereby preventing catches that are sometimes totally destructive”
