I missed “lowering the handle to enter the cut”. Yea, it doesnt work that way. As others said, put the bevel in contact with the wood, above CL, then slowly raise the handle until the bevel starts to cut. Keep the tool on the toolrest. The flute should be turned to ~45*. You may well have just been scraping – thats the only cutting that will occur when lowering the handle to put the tip to the work. Use low rpm until you get a feel for it.
