How far is the chip breaker from the blade?

Try pulling it back a bit (say 3-5 mm). See if that makes a difference.

Next, flatten the underside of the chip breaker and the back of the iron so the two faces meet tightly together. Hold it up to a light once you have the two clamped together, there should be no light showing.

Lastly, polish the top of the chip breaker. It should come to a sharp point and be polished for at least the last 10mm.

I’ll add a useful video link to this thread.

Good luck!
