Subject:
Bruised End Grain?

John Crissman
>Recently, I have been turning end grain (goblets) and getting some 'bruises'. It looks like the start of a tear-out, just pushed in the beginning of a spiral motion.

I have tried to take precautions (slowing the lathe, lighter cuts) but I typically get a little bruise after going in with my scraper, which works very well otherwise.

Can any of you all give me some suggestions?

Thanks,
John
