Nice work, with lots of good ideas. I have been making rosettes on the lathe for years since the drill press likes to chatter and chew just before I hit the proper depth.

New blades put in. We don't have a blade depth guide for this machine so you have to adjust the height manually. I set a dial gauge on the cutter shaft to zero. Then rotated over the blade and adjusted blade edge so it was aprox. 0.050" above the shaft. Ensure that blade is parallel to shaft and measure both sides. Then check manual for roller guide depth check.
