Abstract: The importance of health and environment has forced Machining Industries to reduce the application of Petroleum-based cutting fluid. But to ease the machining process and to increase the tool life, cutting fluids must be used. Research has been done on vegetable oils as cutting fluids which is easy for disposal and does not affect the environment and the operator’s health [1] . This paper discusses the machinability and tool life during drilling of a mild steel work piece using Neem, Karanja, blends of 50%Neem-50%Karanja, 33.3%Neem-66.6%Karanja, 66.6%Neem-33.3%Karanja as cutting fluid. Results obtained using petroleum-based oil are compared with the results obtained by using above mentioned combination of oils and also with dry cutting conditions.
