Subject:
spur center

Terry in Ottawa
>I've just assembled my first lathe, a mono tube bed. I tried mounting a piece of wood but the spur center doesn't dig in to the wood. The four wings around the tapered point are not sharp and do not dig in to the wood.

Is there something wrong with my spur center (the wings aren't sharp)or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
