Crown hollowing tool question

>I just bought the tool yesterday, tried it out and I'm very frustrated. If I set the gap very small (1/16-1/32) to take a fine cut it immediately clogs. This is in kiln dried padauk and bubinga. It seems to clog in air dried black walnut even with the gap set to 1/4 and this setting is way too agressive for me. I tried sharpening it with a diamond hone in case it came dull out of the factory, but no luck. Am I doing something wrong or should I just take it back?
