Machining is a vital part of the production process in the manufacturing industries. Turing operation was carried out on the mild steel to produce shaft of various diameters. The conditions applied during the turning operation include varying the cutting speed and feed rate while keeping other cutting variables like depth of cut constant. The results affirms that an increase in the cutting speed causes a decrease in the tool life, increase in the feed rate also affects the surface finish obtained.
