COUNTERBORE CUTTER FOR BOLTHOLES IN CONCRETE Filed July 31, 1950 2 SI-IEETSSHEET 2 Patented Jan. 22, 1952 COUNTERBORE CUTTER FOR BOLTHOLES IN CONCRETE Chester F. Johnson, Los Angeles, Calif. Application July 31, 1950, Serial No. 176,908

Claims.

This invention relates to a rotary cutter mounted on a shaft journal in sliding bearing blocks in positioning discs and provided with means for actuating the bearing block to shift the axis of the shaft and thereby adjust the position of the cutter whereby with the shaft having the cutter thereon positioned in a bolt hole in a concrete wall or foundation the axis or the shaft is moved from the center toward one side of the hole so that the cutter cuts an enlarged annular recess or counterbore in the wall of the bolt hole.

The purpose of this invention is to provide means for forming an enlarged area in previously drilled holes for anchor bolts in concrete walls, foundations, and the like whereby an anchor bolt may be positively secured in the hole.

In the conventional method of setting inachinery on concrete foundations and also in attaching elements to concrete walls round bolt holes are drilled into the concrete and expansion bolts are expanded therein. By this method a gripping element of the expansion bolt bears against the inner peripheral surface of the bolt hole and with continuous vibration anchor bolts set in this manner work loose. With this thought in mind this invention comtemplates a tool for forming a continuous annular recess or enlarged opening in the inner part of a bolt hole formed in preset concrete and the like.

The object of this invention is to provide means for mounting a rotary cutter in a bolt hole whereby the cutter is moved from the center of the hole in order to cut a counterbore of recess in the material around the hole.

Another object of the invention is to provide a bolt hole counterbore forming tool that may be actuated by a conventional portable drill or the like.

A further object of the invention is to provide a bolt hole counterbore forming tool which is of a simple and economical construction.

With these and other objects and advantages in View the invention embodies a rotary cutter of the type suitable for cutting concrete, mounted on a shaft with bearings on the shaft sildably Figure 2 is a similar view showing the mounting elements of the shaft in section and with Fri) 2 the shaft and cutter positioned in the center of the hole.

Figure 3 is a similar view showing the shaft and cutter actuated to one side of the center in which position the rotary cutter cuts the counterbore in the hole. 7

Figure 4 is a sectional plan taken on line 4-8 of Figure 3 looking downwardly upon the end of the device.

Figure 5 is a cross section through one of the mounting discs with the parts in the position shown in Figures 1 and 2. g 1

Figure 6 is a similar section taken on line 6-5 of Figure 3 showing the parts offset with the cutter in. the cutting position.

Figure 7 is a vertical section through one of the mounting disc's taken on line 1-1 of Figure 5.

Referring now to the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts the bolt hole counter-boring machine of this invention includes a shaft l0 having a cutter I l secured on the end thereof by a nut l2 and having a collar 13 on the upper end whereby a portable drill or other similar device may be attached to the shaft for rotating the same.

The shaft 10 is journaled in bearing blocks M and 55 that are slidably mounted in sections it and ll of positioning discs, and the discs are provided with caps 18 and [9, respectively. The caps are secured to the sections l6 and I! of the discs by bolts 20 and the cap 18 is provided with a chamber 2i having a cylindrical opening 22 in the inner side thereof with a similar chamber 23 in the cap l9 and the chamber 23 is also provided with a cylindrical opening 24.

The bearing I4 is slidably mounted in slots 25 and 26 in the disc 16 and the bearing is provided with a cylindrical stem 2'! that extends into the cylindrical opening 22, providing a piston whereby fluid under pressure in the chamber 2| forces the piston and the bearing from which it ex tends to the opposite end of the opening 28 in which the bearing block is slidably mounted, thereby compressing the spring 29 in the recess 30.

The bearing block l5 which is slidably mounted in similar slots BI and 32 in the disc I I is also provided with a stem 33 that extends into the cylindrical opening 24 providing a piston and pressure in the chamber 23 forces the piston and block I5 forward to the position shown in Figure 6 with the spring 34 in the opening 35 com pressed.

The chambers 21 and 23 of the caps 18 and 18 are connected by a tubular stem 36 and the up: Der end 31 of the stem extends to the lower end of a cylindrical guide 38 in which a cylinder 39 with a piston 40 therein is positioned. A stem 4! of the piston 40 extends upwardly through a packing gland 42 and a handle 43 is provided on the outer end by which the piston may be reciprocated to pump fluid under pressure through the tubes 2'! and 36 to the chambers 2| and 23, respectively.

By forcing the piston 40 downwardly by the handle 43 the pressure of fluid in the chambers 21 and 23 is increased whereby the pistons 21 and 33 move the bearing blocks l4 and I5 to the position shown in Figure 6 wherein the cutter II is held in the position shown in Figure 3 so that as the shaft or pin is rotated the cutter is actuated to form a counterbore in the wall 44 of a bolt hole or opening 45.

The cylindrical guide 38 is provided with an elongated slot 46 through which the shaft H! extends, as shown in Figure 4 and the guide may be provided with an arm 41 through which the shaft and mounting disc may be rotated in the bolt holes to carry the cutter around through an an le of 360 degrees.

The arm 41 of the guide 38 is provided with an indexing finger 48 that may be set by a set screw 49 to position the cutter H in the bolt hole.

It will be understood that modifications may be made in the desi n and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
