This invention relates to machine tools and -up with the ordinary and conventional types of
milling machines.

The machine of this invention has been so
ing machine.
One of the objects of this invention is to pro
5 vide a machine ‘tool in which cutting paths in
angularly related planes may be obtained ‘and
without changingl the setup of a Work piece.
Another object of this invention is to provide
a machine tool in which rcutting paths may be'
. .l O generated in angularly related planes, and mech
anism for preventing generation of more than one
y cutting path at a time.
A further object of this invention is to pro
_ vide a machine tool for generating. cutting paths
' A‘lying in different planes.
Other objects and advantages of the present
invention should be readily apparent hy reference
to the following specification, considered in con“
junction with the accompanying drawings form

contrived that a number of surfaces not sus
ceptible of being machined in a single operation
on conventional machines may be machined in a
single setup of the work piece. Such a machine
is illustrated in Figures 1 and 3 of the draw
ings and comprises a large rectangular base por

of the bed it is an upstanding structure I3 in
which is journaled a pair of cutter spindles I4

formed on the top thereof in which is slidably
mounted a spindle carrier i‘i having a cutter
spindle it rotatably journaled in the end thereof.
Power operable means are provided for re
ciprocating the table it transversely of the cut
ter spindles it .and it whereby a cutting path
may he generated parallel to the direction of
movement of the table; and additional power
operable means have been provided for moving
the spindle carrier i'i along a path angularly re 25

Thehorizontal cutter spindles I4 and I5, shown
in Figure 4, are driven from a second prime
mover, such as the motor 5| which is mounted
upon the top of the structure i3 connected by
a chain and sprocket drive 32 for rotation of a
common drive shaft 33. This. shaft carries a
pinion 34 which rotates spur gear 35 for rotation
10 of cutter spindle I5; and drives spur gear 35 for
rotation of spindle I4, the spur gear 35 inter
meshing with gear 31 .which has a spline- con
nection with spindle |4.
The cutter spindle |4 is anti-frictionally jour

In the latter case, the port 53 of valve 55,
which`is connected by channel 54 to the feed
port 55 of cylinder 53, is connected by a can
nelure 55 in plunger 52 to port 51. The variable
delivery feed pump 55 has a delivery line 55
connected to port 51 and a return line 55 which
is connected to port 15. The port 15 is con
nected by a cannelure 1| to port 12 of valve 55 10
and this port is ~connected by channel 13 to the
other end of cylinder 53. Thus, .the fluid from
the variable delivery pump 55 is delivered to
one end of cylinder 55 and the fluid escaping
from the other end of the cylinder is returned 15

to 'the intake of the variable delivery pump. In
order to care for any leakage of oil from the
position of the surface to be finished. A mech

system and to insure a constant pressure, a low
volume high pressure booster pump 51 is super
meral 45 may be utilised for adjusting the quill
charged by the rapid traverse pump 55 through
channel 14 and the delivery port of the pump is
connected by channel 15 to channel 55 which is
the delivery line of the variable feed pump.
It will be noted that the port 51 is in the form
by a cutter 35 attached to theend of the spindle
and this mechanism may be the same as that
described in connection with the quill adjusting
mechanism shown in Figure 2.
The cutter spindle I5 is eccentrically Journaled
in a quill 4| and‘has an internal gear 42 keyed . of an annular groove in valve 55 and this annular
to the upper end thereof. The internal gear 42 l'groove is connected by channel 15 to port 11 of
meshes with a spur gear 45 which is fixed with valve 55. The port 11 thus corresponds to port

In addition the internal gear 42 has elongated by a channel 15 to port 15 of valve 55 so that

40 vided, as shown at 41 in Figure 1, for clamping
` purposes and a pair of clamping bolts 45 are
provided for securely clamping the quill in any
adjusted position. It will be noted from Figure 1
that the end of the quill 4| _has a plurality of
radial holes 45 drilled in the periphery thereof
whereby a suitably formed wrench may be uti

cutter spindle. By means of this arrangement

valve spool 53 from port 54 and channel 55 lead
ing to the opposite end of cylinder 55.
The rapid traverse pump 55 is utilized for re 45
turning either oi' the slides to a starting position
at a fast rate and has a delivery channel 55 which
is connected to port 51 of valve 55. When the
pump is not being utilized for effecting movement
of the slide, it is desirable that the same be con
