Need help with Sorby Hollower

ruth in So. Cal
>I recently bought the bent head Sorby hollower. It has a cutter that is triangular in shape...and, I don't know how to use it. I checked on Woodcraft's web site but they don't even show the cutter head. When I tried it for the first time yesterday I was using it as it came, with the point facing forward.....this didn't seem to work at all, ongoing catches and very unstable on the tool rest even with hand support.

Can anyone offer any tips?

thanks,

Ruth
