Fe-Wood Posted January 15, 2010 Share Posted January 15, 2010 So I thought I would do a little practice spinning work today between cutting loads of firewood.... I have finally come to the place where I can make it work. Now I need to fine tune some of the other components of spinning. After setting the base and forming the cone I do a trim to even and clean up the edge and I get chatter. I have tried lub, change of angle, change of speed, working on the high and low sides of the arch, more positive pressure and changing the bevel angle on the cutter. The cutter is a HSS 1/4" lathe cutter mounted in a 5/8"Ø bar with a maple handle, total length is about 30". I get chatter like no tomorrow (sometimes). What am I doing wrong?
