This article provides a discussion on cutting tools, their materials and design; cutting fluids; and various aspects of machining operations of heat-resistant alloys, with several examples. Operations such as turning, planing and shaping, broaching, drilling, reaming, counterboring and spotfacing, tapping and thread milling, milling, sawing, and grinding are discussed. Nominal compositions of wrought heat-resistant alloys and nickel-base heat-resistant casting alloys, as well as compositions of cobalt-base heat-resistant casting, iron-base heat-resistant casting, and mechanically alloyed (oxide dispersion strengthened) products are also listed.
