My introduction into lathe work was with the old lantern type tool holders, and it was impressed upon me to set up such that if the tool was forced away from the direction of cut it would not hog in to the work, but would swing away from it. I try to follow that same principal with qc tool and 4way,
tho it is not always convenient.
From many of the pictures on here, it appears that many setups would definately hog in if that happened. Am I just miss-reading the pictures, or is this not an issue with the newer type tool holders?
I also dont recall reading any advice for the newbies this, in the archives, so am curious what the concensus is.
