Did my first turning today on my restored mini lathe. That was kind of fun It’s a wand handle I’m making as a costume prop for my daughter. Made from cherry.
Heck of a good start, how many catches?
Thanks, just a few small catches.
What is a “Catch” ?
Being too aggressive with the cutting angle and the tool “catches” in the wood and bounces the tool out, usually resulting in some tear out.
Yup, and you often throw the wood into the wall and eat the tool.
