Default Versatile skew

The skew is my goto tool for most of my pen turning. While I feel that Iíve got it mastered there is one use that has only produced inconsistent and sometimes disastrous results and that is when I lay it flat on the tool rest and try and correct a slight out of round blank or level CA ripples.
Most of the time I get the result I want, sometimes I bet chip out and canít work out why itís happened. I figure it must be the way l present the tool. Itís sharp and I go for a light touch. If you use the Skew as Iíve described, can you explain how you do this ie do you raise the tool rest? Do you use a particular part of the Skew?
