no ruffles but some ridges

>I'm still working on my crabapple vase. I've nearly got it done. I've been using the Sorby Hollowmaster and the Multitip tool. Both work really well...although I couldn't get my half inch Keltons to stop "chattering." Driven only twice, on consecutive Sundays, extremely low miles...any bids?

Now I don't know if it was the Keltons or something else I did...no matter...but as I'm scraping the inside of the vase I have some "ridges"--soft, kind of wide ridges--that I can feel with my finger under the somewhat pronounced shoulder of the vase. But I can't seem to get rid of them. I can't feel them with the tool and I can't mark them with a grease pencil. If I make a guess as to where to position my scraper tip, I end up making the "pipe" deeper or making a whole new pipe and hence a new ridge. [sigh]

Can someone give me some advise as to how to deal with this sort of problem even if it's beyond my present competancy?
