That is, the periphery of theigrinding wheel which comes against and-contacts the metal to be ground may have an irregular shape given to it transversely of its face to reproduce on a part to be ground such irregular face in relief or the 10 opposite. One example is a grinding wheel ‘with ' a continuous concave groove around its periph eral face betweén -the sides of the wheel >which on the work will produce a corresponding con to which the face of a grinding_whee1 is-to be dressed,- but it is to be understood that the rear edge oi' the template may have many other shapes and is designed as to the shape selected in'accordance with the form and configuration 5 that the peripheral grinding face of the grinding wheel is to take. ` .At the upper side o1 the bar 3 a block 8 with a passage at'the underside thereof from front to rear is either integrally formed or is secured to said bar 3 for the purpose of at- A10 taching a dust guard 8 which extends upwardly and to. the rear at an angle to the vertical, the‘ _ lower end portion thereof being narrowed in width ' vex rib'asillustrated in Fig. 4. It is an object ‘ and turned horizontally as at I0 for entrance into ’ 1l and purpose of my. invention to provide a novel , the rectangular passage at the lower side of the 15 and eilicient means and oney which is simple to part I and over the bar-3. ‘ go construct and" reliable in use for dressing wheels A combined carrier for the dressing or cutting of the character stated or many other forms than diamond and holder for a' feeler to engage the the concaved groove mentioned as `an example. e edge of the template is used. It comprises a- base Anunderstanding of the invention andthe op ‘eration thereof. may be had from the following -description, taken in connection with the ac companying drawings, in which: Fig. 1 is a side elevation with a part in section 25 showing the dressing tool of my invention. "Fig, 2 is a vertical section on the plane of the~ line 2_2 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction indi cated by the arrows. _ ' _ _ ~ - l Fig. 3 is a partial plan and horizontal section, ,o the post holding the dressing diamond being shown in section. _ . " Fig. 4 is a plan v_iew of a portion of the wheel which has been Vdressed in operative/position » II from which a vertical post I2 extends up-_ 20 , wardly, at the upper end of which is a horizontal sleeve I3, in the iront end of which a ‘holder It for a diamond cutter l5 may be releasably se cured; 'I'he head oi' the-holder il, as shown in _ the drawings is of conical form but it may take 25 other shapes, as will be later described. - ‘ - At the upper side and front- portion of the base I a feeler i6 having a forwardly projecting tape portion I'I, the angular relation of the' sides of which are the same as the angular rela- 30 tions of the sides of the head of the holder Il, is clamped upon a raised section I8 having a fiat horizontal upper face by- means of a clamping screw Il.-- The screw i9 passes through an open 35 L_ike reference characters refer toiike parts .ing or slot in the feelerl member IS, permitting 35 in the different figures of the drawings. ~ adjustment ofthe feeler member which must In the construction illustrated in the drawings, beJocated' directly below the diamond holder `I4 a supporting or base plate i, preferably of cast with the pointed end oi' the tapered section I1 iron or `mild steel, at one end thereof hasa trans-i -‘ directly below and in the samev vertical plane 4%’ verse bar 2 secured at the upper side of the plaie, 'with the point of the diamond cutter ~I 5, land with»- 40 above and lengthwise of which is asecond bar 3 the angular sides of the part I'I in inclined planes - which may be termed a,~ clamping bar and which coincidentzwith the planes oi’ the sides of the against a part to be ground. ` f is clamped against the bar 2 by clamping screws ' i, one at each end of the bar 3, as shown. The 45 bar 2 may be secured to the base plate I by screws conical holder il. . _ . ' ` In dressing the grinding wheel 20, the base I ` may be placedupon a magnetic chuck indicated 45 indicated“ in dotted outline 5 in Fig. 1„ passing o at 2l, located properly with respect to the grind upwardly through the base plate I and threading ing wheeland then magnetically held by the into the bar at 2.

The non-magnetic - 3. Apparatus for shaping grinding wheels to a ' character of the bar 2 is also to avoid any mag netizing effects upon the template 6" frorn the desired contour comprising, a supporting base _magnetic chuck 2l on which the tool may be having a fiat upper side, said base being of mag placed and held. >Of course, vwhen the tool is netic attractivelmaterial, a bar secured across 20 one end of the base and above the same, said 20 held some other way than magnetically, it‘makes little difference that the bar 2 or the part i! bar being of non-magnetic material, a feeler plate should be of non-magnetic material, but in most of sheet metal adjustably clamped at the upper ‘ cases the dressing tool will be used in' conjunc-A tion with a magnetic chuck. \ 'I'he diamond may have any radii or may have a knife edge. 'I'his will not alter the working 25 of the >device providing the feeler is shaped to the same outline. „ With a dressing tool or device made in accordance with my invention, it is pos sible to grind duplicate contours, previously here tofore considered a, substantial mechanical im possibility. The grinding wheel may be very readily dressed to a desired or selected contour by providing a template in accordance there 35 with. The dust guard protects the template and the feeler from grit or dust cut from the grinding wheel which might come between the two and re sult in abrasion. The invention- is of a very practical and use ful nature. It is defined in the appended claims side of the bar and having a rear edge shaped to a preselected contour, a >dressing tool and feeler carrying member including a base of non-mag 25 netic attractive material, the underside of which is iiat and is adapted to be moved over the upper side of the first named base in any direction that it may be moved, a wheel dressing tool car ried on and above said second base, said 'tool be 30" ing pointed in a forward direction, a feeler ad justably mounted at the upper side of said sec ond base pointed in the same direction as the dressing tool and havingA its foremost point in direct vertical alinement with the foremost point of the-dressing tool and having its side contours in conformity with the side contours of the dress ing tool, said feeler being adapted to .be held againstl the template and moved therealong to and is lto be considered comprehensive of all forms of structure coming within the scope of said ' , claims.
