Did you see the video that Powerplantop posted in this thread:
Home made mayonnaise: ISO suggestion what recipe to use it in? There was also some discussion of Greg's problems trying to make mayo, like wrong shape of immersion blender.

Here's the video:

I think the power of the stick blender might come into it. I've seem a demo of mayo made like that with a Bamix stick blender and it works perfectly but I've heard people say they've had failures with less powerful stick blenders. (The Bamix will chop meat into minced meat for meatballs, etc., which not a lot of stick blenders will. It's also frighteningly expensive!)

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

I've only ever made it with a regular blender. Never had a problem.
