Then calculations are made to determine where, how fast, and how much the work piece needs to be cut. The materials are selected for the procedure and then the work piece is marked where the cuts need to be made. Once the prior necessities are made the actual machining operations are made while the machinist pays close attention to the feed rate and the machine's speed. This must be done so that the work piece can remain aligned and lubricated properly.
