Proper Piston Groove Cleaner Instuctions Please

So i'm removing carbon crud from the piston ring grooves and metal shavings are showing up in the carbon collection. I'm absolutely sure I'm using the correct cutting size. I measure the piston rings and verified it. The piston ring grooves are 5/64 in. So I'm inserting 5/64 in. cutter. Should I use a smaller cut? Are the metal shavings normal when using the tool? Please offer me your help. I could really use it. I even used PB blaster as a lubricant to prevent metal shavings. While it did ease the force required to turn the tool, piston shavings still came out. Please help. Thank you
