Default HELP!!!--Question about my pen turning--PEN BLANK STOPS!!!

I have put my pen saver mandrel on, put on the first bushing, next my blank, bushing, blank, then last bushing, and then tightened my tail stock slightly [as my instructions say]. I've tightened the tail stock more [several times] until I cracked my blank. I have my lathe at it's highest speed--I've even tried at EVERY speed!

EVERY time I barely touch my tool to my blank to turn it--the blank STOPS. I've also checked on YouTube to see that I have done everything correctly [I think}. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG OR NOT DOING?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Diane
