Boring is the process of enlarging a hole that has already been drilled. It is done by means of a single-point cutting tool such as lathe. Boring is used to achieve greater accuracy of the diameter of a hole, and can be used to cut a tapered hole. It can be viewed as the internal-diameter counterpart to turning, which cuts external diameters. Use this online lathe boring time calculator to calculate for the requrired time for boring on a material.
Consider a material of length 10 m and feed be 3 and the RPM be 10. Calculate the lathe boring time.
Lathe Boring Time = 10/(3 × 10)
