    Hi George, Having discovered that my normal turning do NOT provide the best results and cause unexpected "results". I have obtained the NR tips which reduces the surprises but do you have any advice keeping the quality of the cut good on the epoxy projects combined with softer woods? I find that the NR chisels leave a much rougher surface requiring more sanding. thanks
