the pivotal'axis represented by the bolt H (illus

26 or tilting movement of ‘the'table in respect tothe ,
bolt H is effected by the ?tting C which employs
the quadrant plate 12, carrying the ‘pin or bolt H
which projects from one surface thereof :and'is
designed to pass through the arcuate-slot I 3,in .
the bifurcated mounting piece [3a (Figures 1'
and 3). The swing adjustment of the tabletop
A, in terms of the pivotal axis represented by bolt
II, is effected by tightening or loosening as the
case may be, the nut M on the'bolt ,Il so that

Tilting of the table in the opposite direction

bracket is formed preferably so as to permit de
cluding in the ?tting C, the spaced, parallel, sub
stantially arcuate arms l5 which in fact'carry
the pivot pins H], the latter being pivotally
mounted in the table in any suitable manner such,

of the adjustment of the-table top when swung

The invention will be clearly understood by
reference to the following detailed speci?cation
. ,
In the case of a machine such as the kind illus
trated in the present'drawing, the band saw B
,1 passes through slots'ln the table (not shown) and
‘outer edge ‘of the tableand readily accessible. I
There is no problem, therefore, presented when
1 the table swings relatively’ to the ‘band saw
using‘ such an attachment as is the case in such
a situation where it is necessary by means of a
{ which latter may pass through a suitable guide 28 '
mounted on one side of the mounting piece l3a.
In order to control the tightening and. loosen
wrench of any desired shape to get in under the
tiltablo top to tighten the securing nut [4.
In addition to providing a most convenient
means for loosening and tightening the securing
nut M the manner in which theattachment is

‘ way of a universal joint action 22 is fastened to
