Turning is an operation, normally performed with a lathe, in which the cutting tool uses a single point tool to remove metal from the outside diameter of the object.
We can remove large amounts of metal and prepare for boring, reaming or tapping by first drilling a semi-precise hole or cavity.
Milling is a cutting process used to remove material from the surface of an object with a rotary cutting tool.
Broaching is an operation used in removing material for circular holes and odd shapes.
Knurling is implemented by adding indentations to a part of an object to add texture to increase grip or to make up for wear.
Welding is commonly used in machine repair to join materials by brazing or soldering them to strengthen the joint where they connect.
Boring is an operation in which a lathe is used to enlarge and finish holes with precision.
