T6 whom. it may concern;

Be itknown that we,"JosErn PAUER and BAHNIK, citizen of'the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Guyahog'a and Stateof Ohio,.have invented a .certain he: and useful Improvement in Grinding-Machines, of'which the. following v-ide automatic mechaniSm i-or feeding the other-lo is'a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying draw- ?his invention relates ,to machines for accurately finishing the interior of cylindrical bores .b grinding. The: general object of thedevlce is to mores cific.iobje.ct is to pi'ovide venient y lacing the ,work in position to be operated upon and for readily removing the same .whenfinished; Still another object is;arrange themachine asto proabrading inemberalongthescylinder; Still )jects' a e..t o so arrange the work holding devicefthat itinay-be quickly and accurately. adjusted to bring the work ito the proper position for operating; and also for v adjusting 'the grinding vmember 1 to finish through the same substantially on the line' the work to an accurate size.

Th e manner-of accomplishing the above and other objects will-appear in the follow- 111% ing description which refers to the' drawings, illustratinga preferred embodiment of our invention", andfithe essential characteris- .ti'csare hereinaflerset forthin theclaims'.

This slide is arranged to carry the. work mus ard.

tatably secured to the lower end of the shaft 32 which is thus stifiened by. the sleeve'30; 5 The sleeve and shaft, comprising the spindle, are adapted to beadjusted to move ing blocks 42 and 43 at their 3pm and lower ends respectively, and these locks are pro vided with elongated'openings 44 embracing the upper extension of the spindlein' these openings To maintain the parallelism of the axis of I the spindle with that of 'the sleeve. 40, we provide carrying blocks 46 and 47, each pivoted on 'the'ends of a vertical stud-'48 and extending around and closely embracing the extension of thesleeve.

Both the upper and towel blocks 46 and 47 are provided with a segmental ftoothed portion '50'a'dapted to engage the upper and lower 'ends52 and 53 of a verticalfspindle 54 having it'sbe'aring's' in the blocks 42 and- 43andhaving teeth cutin its ends [to form pinio'ns engaging these segmental port ons. .The rotation of this rod 54 causes the blocks 46 and 47 to swin'gabout the ends of'the stud 48 as-pivots. The toothed ends of the .rod 54 preferably" closely fit the teeth 50, so that 'an accurate adjustment of the axis of the spindle with relation to the axis of thetsleeve may be obtained. To secure such adjustment and t0'-in sure holding the :gindle-i'n any position .given'it', we" have 40 an outwardly extending flange on a head58 of the sleeve 40. The worm 55 is shown as;

having an angular head 57 by which it may be rotatedto rotate the rod 54 andadjust the axis of the s'pindle'with relation to the-axis of the sleeve 40-. i

The reason for adjusting the axis of the spindle-with relation to the sleeve-40. is to bring the grinding surface of the Wheel 12 59 into contact with the cylinder to be fin ished. The grinding of the cylinders is ac complished'bycausing the axis of the raprinding wheel to; revolve finidly rotating D a circular pati-in contact "Vllill then-nner- 55 by the screw 25 heretofore described;

To rotate the spindle 32'a11d the wheelflZ; we may use a belt running over the'pujlley 36 at the upper end ofthe shaft32, as h ere tolfore described. This belt, 75 be". brought to the pulley 36 froinany- 'directi{iii' and be arr-angedto remain tight by a Stilt-g able belt, tightener, allowing for the'revolving movementof the pulley, while causing its rotation, but we'prefer to leadthe belt'75 1- laterally between theuprights 4 and Teach" side of thescrew'25 and then" upwardly, guiding it by" flanged pulleys; 77 carried on .-bracket's78 secured to the liead,'thus causing" the'beltjto be presented to-thepulley 36M the proper .angle regardless O'f th eposition of-the head.
