Attached pic, alumilite clear slow, 60 lbs in pressure pot for 24 hours, 1 week before turning. Am new to resin turning but been turning wood for some time. Any suggestions as to what caused, and how to prevent the tear outs? I tried easy wood tool round cutters, and conventional bowl gouge, both sharp. 1800 rpm's, light pressure. Thanks in advance for your help.
Try a negative rake carbide from easy wood tools. This should fix your problem right away! You do need to be a little less aggress than with turning wood. Once rounded, you can get the speed up which can also help.
