I did a quick search for "spindle whip" and didn't come up with anything.
I'm looking for some guidance on how to deal with it. I'm turning 29" stool legs, have a steady rest from Woodcraft, and it's a pain to keep repositioning. I can't use the steady rest with my custom full-length tool rest and am looking for some suggestions. I have an old 1930's Delta lathe that has plenty of mass, but don't know if my setup needs tweaked to help with whip.
I can turn these legs without the steady rest, it just takes more time and a lot more care.
