>I need a little help with a Sorby chatter tool. I bought this tool used and Iím not exactly sure how to use it. It has a tool handle with a blade that can be adjusted in and out. The flat blade has a square end and a pointed end, appears to be sharpened.
I tried to use it on the rim of a bowl with horrible results; it just tore up the wood. Iím not sure how to present the tool to the wood, at what angle, speed, how it should be sharpened it, and how far it should stick out. Can anyone give some advice?
