Hello Diane. Welcome to the site if i had not gotten a chance to welcome you.

As mentioned a photo of your set up will help us to help you. Also can you tell us which mandrel saver you have. If it is a PSI one when did you buy it because they had a couple versions. There is a quality difference in these things too. One other thing, what is actually stopping from turning?? Is it the blank itself or the bearing on the mandrel. Look to see if the bushing are still spinning or if you have any spacers in there. What stops spinning is key.

Also you need sharp tools and it would help if you knocked off the square corners if they have them till you get the feel for the tools.
