I've been making these for a while and have an order to fill, but I can't get the thing to run true. The tip and the 'whorl' appear to be fine, and it feels right all the way up the stem, but there's a nasty wobble in the last two inches. I'm taking a lot of care to keep my speed down, tools sharp etc, and it should be OK, but I'm wasting too much time binning this and starting over. Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong.
PS I've bought a centre support for my lathe, which is currently being milled down to fit, but I can't wait any longer.
