WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.

Depending on the type of work that is being performed, each machinist develops a collection of tools that may be used frequently.

Certain types of tools perform much better than other types, yet unique circumstances may present a limited number of tooling options. If a carbide insert tooling is not available, a successful lathe machinist will be able to grind his own tooling, be it high speed steel or brazed carbide tool bits.
