it could be the drive belt is in between one of the stacks or your bit it too high/low. For it to give you a really nice cut you have to have the bit in the middle of the comm, maybe even a shim higher.

You want the bit to be at center or slightly above the center of the comm. Also, make sure the comm is rotating away from the bit.

Just checking, but are you hooking up your positive power source to the negative on the slave motor? With this lathe you need to run the motor backwards.
