Facing tool question
I am having a LOT of trouble with blanks blowing out when I use the facing tool on them, it happens on acrylic, stabilized, dried wood. It seems like I have had terrible luck with them today. I lost over $35.00 ($50 if you figure tnew tubes, kits, glue & shipping) today alone. This was before I ever turned the lathe on!
I have used a cordless on low & high speed a regular drill 2 different facing tools and just about every idea I can think of. When I face them, I trim them to within 1/8” before I try to use the facing tools. I have not changed glues or technique with gluing in the tubes. I could REALLY use some advice on this one.

A man needs only two tools: WD40 and duct tape. If it does not move and should, use the WD40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
