Using a fluted parting tool?


Recommended Posts

For some reason there is no picture.  I have a Sorby and it is used flute up.  The ridges of the flute create the sharp points that score the wood fibers on the way in creating the cut smooth.  If you use it down you will ruin those edges on the tool rest.  I love mine.
