Machine Tools can be grouped into six major classes: Turning machines were some of the first machines to be developed. Examples: potter's wheel and lathes. Drilling Machines, the most common drilling machine is the drill press. Milling and Sawing Machines use either the straight or circular saw blades. The work is fed into the moving blade, creating a cut. Many of these machines use rotating circular blades or cutters. Planing and Shaping Machines are generally limited to cutting metals. Both machines use a single-point tool. The shaper moves the tool into the work to produce the cut. The metal planer moves the work into the tool. Grinding and Sanding Machines use abrasives to cut materials from the workpiece Shearing Machines slice materials into parts. They used opposed edges to cut the workpiece
