OldTool ~ something I thought about last night; the length and diameter
of the wood you are turning may be at the point where it needs a Steady Rest.
if you are experiencing ANY wiggle or wobble in the wood while turning,
it can cause catches and other annoying things.
after you play around with the higher speed and tool associated adjustments,
you may find that to work better. if not, look at the Home Made Steady Rest
on YouTube to see how it works.
all the best,

TIP: keep the chips cleaned away from the work area as often as possible.
that way, “when” you have a big chip knocked out, you can find it easily
and glue it back in.
