A radiometric method of tool-wear evaluation was investigated and evaluated by comparing the results with those obtained from visual wear measurements. A liquid scintillation technique is presented for accurately determining tool wear for cutting limes as low as 0.003 min. It is recommended that the radioactive tracer techniques of measuring tool wear be used as supplemental methods in conjunction with visual wear determination procedures rather than primary methods of evaluating machining variables.
