Teach a New Tool by Hand Turning the Spindle

Don Stephan
Wondering if anyone has tried helping a person learn a new tool (skew, gouge, scraper) by turning the spindle by hand while the student brings the tool to the wood. Often I've seen on a video a demonstrator will do this to show how the shaving comes off the tool, but seems like it would help new turners experiment without fear of a crash.
