shown in Fig. 1. For grinding this type of work curately to the plane of the template shoulder,
by the plunge cut method, i. e., by feeding the
grinding wheel S radially toward the axis of the
work, the surface of the grinding wheel with its
individual adjacent surface portions, must have
its diameter graduated accurately in accordance
with the measurements-when considering the di
ameter of the work, but‘ in inverse relation there
to, the smallest diameter of the work correspond

and vice verse.

It is, therefore, the "essence of this invention ‘to
provide a machine or device which is capable of

According to the invention, this is effected by
positively interrupting the transverse feeding
movement of the diamond holder 2 (produced
by the piston drive 4, 5), by mechanical means
adjustable with the necessary accuracy, as soon
as the guide pin 20 is in the correct position on

According to the invention a constant speed

surface, with which the grinding wheel must
act upon part-‘d of the work (to be passed‘ over
bythe diamond during the dressing‘ operation), 20
To accomplish this end, a ?ne adjusting means
