Turn off the lathe and ensure it is completely stopped before starting.
Clean the work area and make sure there are no metal chips or other obstacles.
3.Choose the correct cutting tool based on the type of material you are machining (steel, aluminum, plastic, etc.).
Mount the Tool in the Tool Holder or Turret:
Align the tool with the tool holder or the turret's corresponding position.
Secure the tool in place using the tightening key. Ensure it is tightly fastened.
Check the Alignment:
Manually rotate the lathe to ensure that the tool does not touch any part of the machine or the workpiece.
Adjust the tool's position if necessary to avoid collisions.
