I’ll try raising the tool rest and see what that does. I can’t go any faster using the chuck, the directions warn against exceeding 1800 rpm, I’m at 1475 and the next pulley is 2200. I’ll try some faster speed with some between centers work.

I’ve worked with the skew a little and did get some OK finishes with some planing cuts on practice pieces. Turning beads or much of anything else was a disaster, so much more practice is in order there as well.
