Riding the bevel ()

John there is a bevel touching the wood. It may only be a millimeter but it's there. When you have something like a skew for example on a round cyclinder there is only a very small portion of the area behind the edge that is functioning as the bevel. when you lift the tool off of this you get a catch. Push down a little and the skew quits cutting because that very small bevel levers the cutting edge out of the cut.
