>Keith You know I love you man so this is just for fun. For those who haven't followed the tool rest height debate keith challenged us to show that we can turn with the tool rest too high or too low.

This is with the tool rest about 3/8" above the top of the spindle and about 3/8" below the spindle. I always suggest using your body to control the cut. In this photo I was using my head, literally.
