    - Different types of operations such as turning, chamfering, grooving, knurling, thread cutting, etc are the different operations performed on lathe machines.

    - Chamfering: In this process, sharp ends of the workpiece are beveled. This process is carried out to remove burrs and protect end of workpieces. Chamfering gives better look to the workpieces. Chamfering is performed before thread cutting because this allows nut to freely pass on the threaded workpiece.

    - Knurling: The process of embossing a diamond shaped regular pattern on surface of workpiece is called as knurling. This process uses a knurling tool.

    - Grooving: The process of providing narrow groove on cylindrical surface of workpiece is called as grooving.

    - Facing: In this process, the material is removed from the end surface or face of the workpiece.
