Tools are generally the ones used for soft metals, but in order to avoid continuous sharpening of the tools can be used those of hard metal, with the same cutting and rake angles, whose sharpening must be accurately finished. Tools already used for metalworking must be re-sharpened before being used in processing the product.
Turning, milling and drilling operations are performed at low speed with little pushing. Due to the low thermal conductivity of these materials, cooling is always recommended. You can use: oil, emulsified oils, soapy water. Fog cooling - with compressed air or sprayed refrigerant - can also be effective.
