In this paper a new frictional model of cutting process  developed to gain better insight into the mechanics of frictional chatter is presented. The model takes into account the forces acting on the tool face as well as on the tool flank. Nonlinear dynamic behaviour is presented using bifurcation diagrams for nominal uncut chip thickness (feed rate) as the bifurcation parameters. The influence of the depth of cut for different tool stiffnesses have been investigated. Finally, the influence of the tool flank forces on the system dynamics is studied.
