CONSIDERABLE improvements have been made during recent years to cutting tools with the object of removing stock more rapidly and consequently more economically. Most of the power used in driving a machine tool is transmitted to the tool tip and the resulting heavier loading necessitates increased attention to provide adequate cooling and lubrication. Correct cooling and lubrication provides increased tool life and a final product that has a better finish and is truer in size.
