The objective of the present study is to understand the cutting tool behavior during turning operation for the machining of gun-metal by varying the cutting parameters to develop the cutting forces and surface roughness. The experiment was conducted on the turning of gun-metal with the uncoated tool using soluble oil as a coolant. The parameters considered for the present study are cutting speed at three different conditions of 710 rpm, 1120 rpm, and 1800 rpm, and a depth of cut was at three different conditions of 0.5 mm, 1 mm, 1.5 mm, at a constant feed rate of 0.16 mm. From the results, it was observed that the increase in the cutting speed and depth of cut results in the decrease of cutting force. Increasing the cutting speed and depth of cut results in the increase of surface roughness. In the present study, it has been suggested that for turning of gun-metal lower speed is recommendable.
