Skew?

Mk
>Ok, I am finally ready to use a skew. I have been putting it off for sometime because of the first few times I tried it I had some massive (read SCARY) catches.

First, I need to know exactly what a skew is used for as I think it is used for finishing work, to lesson the use of sandpaper.

Second, can a skew be used on a straight cylidar, like finishing a rolling pin?

Third, are there any websites with good tutorials on how to hold the skew?

Thanks!
