Key to Links for Patent Information

USPTO = U.S. Patent Office . Images of the actual patent can be viewed on the U.S. Patent Office web site but a special TIFF viewer must be installed with your browser in order properly work. More information on how to configure your computer to view these patents can be found at TIFF image Viewers for Patent Images.
DATAMP = Directory of American Tool And Machinery Patents . A sister site to VintageMachinery.org with information on patents related to machinery and tools. A much easier user interface than the USPTO's for finding information on machinery patents.

Abstract
A collet chuck having a radially movable pin therein for locking a tool such as an end mill against axial withdrawal from and turning in the collet. The pin is tapered and fits within a correspondingly tapered, radially extending hole in the collet which limits its inward movement. The pin is biased into full seating engagement with the tapered hole by a retaining spring and is adapted to be cammed radially outwardly during insertion of an end mill by a beveled end on the tool shank or by the flute contour in the case of a double ended end mill. With the collet in the chuck the inner end of the pin radially overlaps a shouldered recess on the shank of the tool and the outer end contacts the inner wall of the chuck. The pin thereby prevents axial withdrawal or turning of the tool.

3,831,402 Aug. 27, 1974 Knitting Machine Encoder Ralph H. Schuman Euclid, OH Abstract
An improved knitting machine includes an encoder which provides signals which vary with variations in the relative position of a needle cylinder and associated feeders. The encoder includes code tracks for providing binary coded needle count signals, feeder count signals, and revolution count signals. A control system receives these binary coded signals and effects the knitting of a selected one of a plurality of patterns. A pattern selector switch is operable to vary the selected pattern.

4,685,361 Aug. 11, 1987 Machine Tool Carl J. Myers Mentor, OH Abstract
An improved machine tool includes a chip conveyor assembly which includes a conveyor and a coolant tank. The chip conveyor assembly is movable between a closed or operating position and an open or exposed position. In the closed position, the chip conveyor assembly is disposed directly beneath a work area so that chips fall onto the conveyor. The chips are transported through an opening at one end of the machine tool to a discharge area where the chips are deposited in a suitable receptacle. To facilitate maintenance of the chip conveyor assembly, the entire chip conveyor assembly is movable through an opening in the front of the machine tool to an open position in which the components of the conveyor are accessible.

4,882,847 Nov. 28, 1989 Coordinate Measuring Machine with Improved Carriage Way Arrangement Thomas L. Hemmelgarn Dayton, OH Abstract
A coordinate measuring machine (10) of the horizontal arm type having an improved way arrangement for a carriage (40) mounted for movement along one of the orthogonal axes (X) of the machine including a pair of angled upstanding granite way members (24,26) detachably mounted spaced apart atop a granite base member (22), extending parallel to each other and the axis of movement. The way members (24, 26) have inwardly turned opposing overhang portions (28, 30) formed with upper horizontal way surfaces (32,34) and under way surfaces (36,38). The carriage (40) is received in the space between the way members (24,26) and is formed with flanges (42,44) extending over the upper way surfaces (32, 34) with pairs of air bearings (46a,b; 48a,b) interposed. Preload brackets (50,52,54) are attached to the underside of the carriage (40), constructed of a different material to equalize the thermal growth, and have portions (56, 58, 60) extending beneath the under way surfaces (36,38) with pairs of preloading air bearings (62a,b; 64a,b) interposed. Integral pairs of guide legs (66a,b; 68a,b) extend downwardly on either side of a granite guide rail (70) affixed atop the base member (22) with lateral guiding air bearing pairs (76a,b; 78a,b) interposed.
