Hunter Tool Cutting Position .......

Jake Niedling
>Lets start with the Hunter tool & handle level and the center of the cutting edge on center. The tool cutting edge is rolled approximately 45 degrees. Now on the inside of a bowl, is this the best position? If not, then what is the correct position? Cut below center, above center, tool handle down below center, tool handle up above center.

I have used it successfully, but occassionally it will get a little grabby. So I am just trying to find the sweet spot.
