Scope of the present measurement campaign is the evaluation of the cutting fluid performance. The report presents the standard routine and the results obtained when turning stainless steel and brass with a commercial vegetable based oil called RM. The methods were developed to be applicable in normal workshop conditions using common equipment for turning as well as in a test laboratory. The evaluation tests can be carried out using the desired number of repetitions in terms of workpiece materials and tools.
