My invention relates to tools and particularly
to a milling attachment adapted to' be connected
with lathes and the like.
The main object of the invention is to make
it possible to execute small milling operations in
small shops not being equipped with a conven
tional milling machine.
Another object of the invention is to provide
a milling device adapted to be easily attachable
to and removable from a lathe or the like.
A further object of the operation is to provide
a milling device adapted to be used in connection
I8 is fast on the shaft I6.
A hollow shaft I9
extends vertically through the top of the body
lâ and the bottom plate II thereof and is ro
tatable therein. A worm wheel 20 is rigidly
mounted on this hollow shaft and meshes with
the worm I8. The stern 2| of a milling cutter 22
may be inserted into the hollow shaft i9 and is
rigidly held therein by a set screw 23. A rec
tangular spacer bar 24 extends cross-wise over
10 the whole width of the body adjacent its end
which is also parallel to the center line of the
iathe. A supporting plate 26 is fastened on top
of the spacer bar 24 by means of bolts 21, which
extend through the plate and the bar and are
moving it from the lathe.
