A lathe tool is a cutting tool that is used to shape and finish cylindrical objects. The lathe is a machine that rotates the workpiece while the cutting tool is held against it, removing material to create the desired shape. Lathe tools are typically made of high-speed steel or carbide and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are three main types of lathe tools: turning tools, boring tools, and threading tools. Turning tools are used to create smooth, even surfaces on the workpiece. Boring tools are used to enlarge or deepen existing holes. Threading tools are used to create threads on the outside surface of the workpiece or to cut internal threads (taps).
