This invention relates to tool holders or ?x
tures, and more‘ particularly to a, universally ad
justable tool ?xture forholding tools of various
kinds for the sharpening or grinding operations
' .thereon, or for wheel dressing to various con- >
tours, or for performing various gaging or testing
An object of the invention is to provide an
improved universally adjustable tool ?xture, in
which the tool carrying member is arranged to
be quickly and easily set in anyone of a‘ plurality
of predetermined positions.
