Lathe machine working

How to lathe machine works? 

Lathe machine

A lathe is a machine tool which holds the work piece between two rigid and strong supports called centres or in a chuck or faceplate which revolves. 

The cutting tool is rigidly held and supported in a tool post which is fed against the revolving work. 

The normal cutting operations are performed with the cutting tool fed either parallel or at right angles to the axis of the work.

Depth of cut, feed and cutting speed and machining time is also important parameter in machining on a lathe.

When we use a lathe, the following things must take great care.

(1) Don't keep a chuck handle attached by the chuck. Next, it flies at the moment of turning a lathe.
(2) Don't touch the byte table into the rotating chuck. Not only a byte but the table or the lathe are damaged.
