Turning a bowl: screech screech screech screech

wilbur
>I've been trying to turn a thin walled bowl. As the walls get thinner, I get this horrible screeching sound, whether I use a gouge or a scraper. I'm sure this is due to the wall of the bowl vibrating more as it gets thinner, but is there a way around this? It's highly annoying.

So far I've come up with:

A. 80 grit gouge

2. Ear plugs

III. That's why you should turn bowls with 3/8" thick walls, dolt!
