The Flat Turret Chucking Lathe

Ust as the original Flat Turret Lathe was the first machine to be equipped with an outfit of conveniently adjustable tools for bar work, so now with the present machine we have provided a universal outfit of tools for chuck work.

The many illustrations of chucking tools and conditions under which they work will carry conviction that we have not fallen short of our established record, to use only the most practical and efficient tools held under the most rigid control and in conveniently adjustable holders. When we say chuck work, we do not mean merely the process of boring a rough hole in a piece of work to be reamed elsewhere and after that to be pushed on an arbor and turned in some other machine, but we mean finishing the work shown by our accompanying sketches, in which every possible cut is taken that can be taken, and still leave means for holding the piece.

Just as in the past we restricted our working dimensions to a 2-inch spindle hole, so now in this machine we restrict our chucking swing to 12 and 14 inches; but in doing so, we furnish a machine that cannot be equaled by any other machine.

The simplicity of our entire scheme makes it possible to retain for our entire range of work our claim made for the original machine, viz., we can make one piece quicker than it is possible to make it in an engine lathe, and if two pieces or more are required our systems of stops make a convenient and quick means for accurate duplication.

The ten stops for the cross-feed head, combined with the dozen stops for the turret, and the turning and boring tools, all of the simplest and stiffest construction, make this machine ready to begin work as soon as it is supplied with the driving power. It is not only ready to begin work on the work for which it may have been purchased, but

it is supplied with a set of tools that will take care of any similar piece any hour or any day in the future ; and, notwithstanding this universality, adaptability and efficiency, our tools and work are brought together under the most rigid control and under ideal conditions never before attained in a lathe.

All the shears and running surfaces are protected from the dust of cast-iron, so that the machine may be used for either steel work in which oil is used, or for cast-iron chucking.

The drawings on pages 140 to 189, inclusive, are intended to show some of the results of giving the lathe head stock a cross travel. For compactness the work is shown at each turret tool, but it will be understood that the turret turns to present each tool to the work and that the travel of the turret carriage lengthwise, combined with the cross travel of the work-carrying head stock and the turning of the turret, bring all the necessary changes of position of work and tools.
