...his way seemed so inefficient to me

Rob's main/only method for controlling tearout is to take ultra thin shavings. He does occasionally use a scraper or a backbevel for a high cutting angle, but rejects a closed up chipbreaker.

This is no doubt in some part his sales talk for his students.

Regards from Perth
