The tool and work-piece interactions will be modeled via discontinuous systems to study the effects of work-piece characteristics the on sensitivity of steady state motions. The general model will be presented through the domains of continuous dynamical systems for this machine-tool. The periodic motions of intermittent cutting will be developed and implemented to describe the solution structure. The switching components at the chip/tool friction boundary will be discussed in regard to work-piece characteristics.
