There are lots of for metal cutting measurement. However, thermocouple is not in the list of metal cutting measurement.
Anyway,
is it possible to measure the temperature for turning machine by using K-type thermocouple.
Can i put the thermocouple at the end of cutting edge to measure ? can it works ?

Yes it can work, the questions are:
- Can you make good thermal contact between the thermocouple and the blade?
- Can you prevent the thermocouple from short wiring?
- Can you prevent the thermocouple from getting damaged?

Otherwise thermocouples can measure temperatures that are quite high.
