Hunter Tool - Sweet Spot?

Barry Turner
>I got a new Hunter # 4 for Christmas. For some reason, I can't seem to find the tool's "sweet spot". I'm beginning to think my tool was shipped without one. Seriously, the tool just seems unstable. I can't seem to rub the bevel or get the tool to cut where I want it to. I tried yesterday to use it to do the final finish cut on the inside of a 6" maple bowl. Well, let's just say that was NOT the final finish cut......or even close! What am I doing wrong?
