Turning Archive 2005
>I finally got to use my McNaughton system and during the first bowl the medium blade bent and twisted. This was the first bowl so i was inserting the tool very slowly and the lathe was spinning about 350 rpm when the blade twisted in the gate and the blank wedged on the blade. When i pulled the blade out of the blank ii is bent and twisted.
Are the blades really this fragile?
How does everyone keep the blades from bending?
How do you submit a warranty request?
Any suggestions and or comments are appreciated.
