973,542 Oct. 25, 1910 Boring-head for lathes, milling-machines, and the like Adolph Muehlmatt Newport, KY Alfred M. Allen - patent attorney
The object of my invention is to provide a boring head for cutting tools in which the tool may be advanced for successive operations by the movement of the adjusting screw either over comparatively long distances or very minutely with each adjustment, and at the same time the distance traveled may be accurately measured and determined on the graduated dial or scale employed to indicate the movement of the adjusting screw. While I have illustrated my invention in connection with a boring head for lathes and the like, it will be obvious from the following description and claims that the general principles of the invention may be readily applied to the adjustment of all sorts of tools and appliances in which a relatively fixed and a relatively movable plate or holder are arranged to be adjusted with reference to each other by means of an adjusting screw normally held in fixed relation on the one member and adapted to advance or retract the other member by the rotation of the screw therein. The invention consists, broadly considered, in providing the adjusting screw for members to be adjusted with reference to each other, with a series of threads of different pitch and in connection wherewith providing means either for holding the screw in fixed relation to the relatively fixed member while permitting the screw to advance or retract the other member by screw threaded engagement therewith, or for holding the screw with the screw threads of one pitch in engagement with the relatively fixed member, and the screw threads of the other pitch in engagement with the other member, whereby with the rotation of the screw, the 'member to be adjusted will advance or retract on the screw while at the same time the screw itself with reference to said member will retract or advance and the actual movement of the member to be adjusted-with reference to the fixed member will be equal to the difference between the advancement on the screw and the retraction of the screw.
985,536 Feb. 28, 1911 Mechanical opening and closing spring-chuck Adolph Muehlmatt Newport, KY J. C. Lennon - patent attorney
My invention relates to mechanical opening and closing spring chucks, and it has for its object the improvement in the construction of such devices whereby they are simplified and rendered more efficient.
Having described my invention what I claim is:
1. In a device of the character specified, a pair of cooperating rotating members, the one movable lengthwise with reference to the other, fingers pivotally mounted on one member and adapted to bear upon the other to shift the one with reference to the other, and a loose ring encircling and engaging said fingers on the outer sides thereof, with means for shifting the ring to close the fingers, for the purpose specified.
2. In a device of the character specified, a pair of cooperating rotating members, a housing in which said members are mounted, one member movable lengthwise with referenee to the other, fingers pivotally mounted on one member and adapted to bear upon the other, a loose ring embracing said fingers, and a lever to actuate said ring, with a diagonal slot in the housing through which said lever passes whereby the oscillation of the lever will shift the ring to close the fingers.
3. In a device of the character specified, a pair of cooperating rotating members, a housing in which said members are pointed, one member movable lengthwise with reference to the other, fingers pivotally mounted on one member and adapted to bear upon the other, a loose ring embracing said fingers, provided with an external annular groove, an actuating ring seated in said groove and a lever secured to said actuating ring, with a diagonal slot in the housing through which said lever passes whereby the oscillation of the lever will shift the ring to close the fingers.
4. In a device of the character specified, the combination with a housing and a hollow spindle mounted to rotate therein, and a quill mounted in said spindle and movable lengthwise thereof, with a spring chuck., secured to the quill, a tension ring secured to the quill, a plurality of fingers pivotally secured to the spindle and adapted to bear on said tension ring to shift the quill, a loose ring encircling and engaging said fingers on the outer sides thereof, with means for shifting the ring to close the fingers, for the purpose specified.
5. In a device of the character specified, the combination with a housing and a hollow spindle mounted to rotate therein, and a quill mounted in said spindle and movable lengthwise thereof, with a spring chuck secured to the quill, a tension ring adjustably secured to the quill, a plurality of fingers pivotally secured to the spindle and adapted to bear on said tension ring to shift the quill, a loose ring embracing said fingers, and a lever to actuate said ring with a diagonal slot in the housing through which said lever passes whereby the oscillation of the lever will shift the ring, for the purposes specified.
6. In a device of the character specified, the combination with a housing and a hollow spindle mounted therein, and a quill mounted in said spindle and movable lengthwise thereof, with a spring chuck secured to the quill, a tension ring adjustably secured to said quill, a ring secured to said spindle provided with a plurality of longitudinal slots, with fingers pivotally mounted on the ring in said slots, with their outer ends adapted to bear upon the tension ring, a loose ring mounted on said slotted ring to close said fingers, and means for shifting the ring, for the purpose specified.
7. In a device of the character specified, the combination with a housing and a hollow spindle mounted therein, and a quill mounted in said spindle and movable lengthwise thereof, with a spring chuck secured to the quill, a tension ring adjustably secured to said quill, with means for locking the tension ring in place, a ring secured to said spindle provided with a plurality of longitudinal slots, with fingers pivotally mounted on the ring in said slots, with their outer ends adapted to bear upon the tension ring, a loose ring mounted on said slotted ring to close said fingers, and means for shifting the ring, for the purposes specified.
8. In a device of the character specified, the combination with a housing and a hollow spindle mounted therein, and a quill mounted in said spindle and movable lengthwise thereof, with a spring chuck secured to the quill, a tension ring adjustably secured to said quill, a ring secured to said spindle, provided with a plurality of longitudinal slots, with fingers pivotally mounted on the ring in said slots, with their outer ends adapted to bear upon the tension ring, a loose ring mounted on said slotted ring to close said fingers, and a lever to actuate said ring, with a diagonal slot in the housing through which said lever passes whereby the oscillation of the lever will shift the ring, for the purpose specified.
