  10. 10. Hone.
  11. 11. * Honing is a machining process that produces a precision surface on a metal by scrubbing an abrasive stone against it along a controlled path. * Honing is primarily used to improve the geometric form of a surface, but may also improve the surface texture.
  12. 12. Lathe machine.
  13. 13. * A lathe is a machine tool which rotates the work piece on its axis to perform various operations such as cutting, drilling, or deformation.
  14. 14. Planer.
