|Chapter 3. How to Use a Lathe|
Using a Side Tool
The General Side Tool for Lathe
|Figure 1 shows the general cutting tool for a lathe processing. This tool
has a edge at the left side of the tool. It is used to cut the outside
surface and a flat edge of the material.

If the byte is set to lean ...|
The tool must to adjust in the suitable height. That is the common knowledge
of the lathe operations. Also the edge of cutting tools must touch to the
material correctly. When the tool is set, we should adjust the leaning
as shown in Figure 2.

Process of Outside Surface and Edge Surface
|There are two types of cuttings methods for the side tool.
The tool can cut the outside surface of a material as shown in Figure 3(a).
The tool is sent to the left.
The tool also cut the flat edge surfcae of the material as shown in Figure
3(b). the tool is sent to the forward.
These are the most fundamental operation of the lathe.
