Negative rake angle never exists it varies from 5 to 15.

Not relief angle, it is a negitive rack angle.

Relief angles are to avoid the tool rubbing from work piece.

It must be negative rack angle.

I think -ve rake angle is given for machining of high strength materials. And -ve relief angle does not even make sense. Does -ve relief angle even exists?

Goodmorning! I was reading about thermal spray coating properties (ASM, 2004) and it is mentioned that "Substrate asperities with negative relief can be formed prior to coating by grit blasting and other mechanical surface preparation techniques". So looking at the answers above "negative relief" is an angle or it can also be something else? if it can what is it? can someone recommend an enlightening article?

Negative rake only used for hard metals. But negative relief angle used for soft metals.

It should be rake angle.

The answer is wrong.

The answer should be rake angle.

- It makes the tool blunter, increasing the strength of the cutting edge.

Relief angle never negative. It lie between 3-15 degree.
