Cutting fluids used in machining process act as a coolant as well as lubricant. However these cutting fluids are environment unfriendly, toxic and costly. They may create several ecological problems such as polluting the water resources, damaging the soils. Now a days efforts were made to completely eliminate the poisonous fluids .In this regards interest in vegetable oil is growing. Combination of MQL and vegetable based cutting fluids can be used to improve the productivity and avoid environmental effect. This paper focuses on development of low cost, simple MQL system and to evaluate performance of vegetable oil based on cutting forces, temperature. The experimental results show that vegetable oil outperforms the mineral based fluid.
