A technique for measuring temperature close to the primary cutting edge in turning has been developed. The cutting temperatures of a 0.16 percent carbon bright drawn mild steel, have been measured for a range of cutting speeds and feedrates at a constant depth of cut. Tool nose radius was also varied. The correlations for the workpiece temperature of cutting speed and feedrate have been developed. The results show that the temperature correlates well with cutting speed and feedrate but the nose radius has little effect. Cutting forces were measured by a dynamometer and these were used to find the non zero forces at zero feedrate. These forces have been related to the deformation of the work material near the cutting edge of the tool and a method for calculating the cutting temperatures from these has been proposed.
