The cutting fluids are responsible for reducing heat at tool work interface, reducing the cutting force, easy chip removal, high material removal rate (MRR), lubrication improvement between tool and work piece and thereby increasing the surface finish. Good lubricating capacity, less viscosity, better heat removal rate, high heat conductivity and specific heat are the desired flow and heat transfer parameters of cutting fluids. The development of lubricants like cutting fluids traditionally has mineral oil as base fluid. This fact is related to the technical properties and the reasonable price of mineral oils. Issues of using fluids in machining related to health, environment, and manufacturing cost that need to be solved and options to reduce their use has to be developed. Hence there arises the need for an ecologically benign metal working fluid in machining operations. In this work a coconut oil based cutting fluid is developed with different concentration of oil and water. Different properties of these fluids are also found out. A comparative study of using Coconut oil based fluids and Mineral oil based fluid were conducted by taking stainless steel as workpiece material on a conventional lathe.
