I really need some help here. The make of tip doesn't matter as I have had this happen with all brands. It is a soft tip. Installed on mid-size Cuesmith lathe. New Muecci replacement ferrule. Only used Lenox titanium blades (new) to cut tip to diameter of ferrule and to shape to dime size radius. BARELY touched blade to tip shape as leather ribboned off nicely. Lathe turned at slow speed. Little chance of heat build up. Now the question-why did this tip "click"? It sounds like glue rubbing against glue! Is this possible? Thanks.
