A tool-life model based on the assumption that wear and fracture are the causes of tool death is re-examined from the theoretical standpoint, and extended to include the effect of cutting speed on the fracture-induced failure rate. A stochastic model for multi edge cutting tools is also proposed. This enables the overall statistics to be derived from the data for each individual cutting edge.
