Techniqnes are presented which are applicable in machining materinls such as U, graphite, Ti, Zr, Th, Ta, Be, Bi, Li, and stellite. Included in the general considerations are factors related to machinability of the materials, operating condition of the machines, and the condition of the cutting tools. In addition, industrial hygtene and safety aspects are examined. The techniques for each material are discussed in detail, the greatest attention being focused on uranium.
