>here is a picture of low handle position turning. With the tool used as shown there is virtually no chance of a catch because the tool will back out of a cut that it cannot handle. Raising the handle will cause the tool to be forced to cut through whatever grain comes to it. Note the cut is made on "the equator" so the toolrest must be much lower.
