Sorby mega gouge.

Rick in Colgate, Wi
>Quite some time back I acquired a Sorby mega bowl gouge, its probably 3/4". I put a fingernail grind on it like I have on my 3/8ths gouge. I can turn the outsides of bowls fine with it, the insides are another matter, all the gouge wants to do is hop around, seems like I cant get it to bite and make a continous cut and chip.

Should I be using some other type of grind on it other than the fingernail grind?
