which allows the back of the saw to swing freely while the teeth

With these Guides the operator can
force the
saw around the

American No. 40 Chain -Feed Edging Saw
THIS
is an extremely rigid and well-designed machine for accurately edging crooked and uneven stock and cutting out
checks and imperfections. It will rip to widths leaving the edges
perfectly straight at a rate equal to the output of two or three
hand-fed saws. All the adjustments are in sight and are made
from the front of the machine.
Capacity Will rip stock as short as 8" and to 24" wide. Distance
from saw to left hand of table 24". Largest diameter of saw used

the cored type, exceptionally heavy and strong,
making a rigid support for the saw and the upper feed works. It is
gibbed to the frame in heavy ways in such a manner that when
clamped to the frame by the clamp lever it is absolutely free from
vibration.
It is adjusted by a screw with ball end-thrust bearing
operated by a large hand wheel at the front of the machine.
Arbor Is 2" diameter and runs in three self-oiling bearings. Pulley, 8"x7", speed 3000 to 3400 R.P.M.
Sight feed oil cups are
provided. Feed Works Consist of an endless-feed chain in the table
with pressures above to keep the stock in firm contact with the
chain.
There is an in-feed and an out-feed pressure roll of large
diameter.
The in-feed roll is driven, thus making it more positive
in entering stock for straight ripping. Rolls are horizontally mounted
—
—
on hinged arms and have independent vertical adjustment with
spring pressures applied to each.
This affords flexibility that permits the stock to enter the rolls easily. The arms of both the infeed and out-feed rolls can be adjusted so they can be kept in perfect
alignment with the saw and the feed chain. The saw and rolls are
entirely enclosed making an efficient suction hood.
The hood is adjustable on a screw with ball bearing end-thrust operated by an overhead handwheel and has graduated scale to indicate height of the
rolls.
There is also a kick-back or sliver guard back of the in-feeding roll which makes a complete protection for the operator.
The
front of the roll hood is provided with a sight that indicates the
location of the saw for sighting the cut.
A section of the circular
hood for the saw can be removed for changing saws by loosening
two hand wheels and the suction pipe does not have to be removed.
Three rates of feed, usually_60, 120 and 160 lineal feet per minute are
provided. Quick change of feed is made, without throwing off the
power, by lever at the left of operator.
Binder lever controlling the
feed is at the right of operator.
The driving mechanism on the
right side of the machine for the endless feed chain and in-feed roll
consists of steel roller chain and feed pulley which are entirely enclosed.
Table Is fitted with an endless chain which travels on an
independent bed plate with the wearing surfaces lined with steel. It
can be adjusted vertically to insure perfect contact with the stock
on the table. The adjustment is made by hand wheel and screw
from the in-feeding end of the machine. The front end of the bed
is also adjustable, transversely to and from the saw.
This insures
perfect alignment with the saw at all times.
Sight-feed oil cups are
provided at the right-hand side of frame for lubricating the chain.

develop 4 H.P. each. In order to obtain this speed, a frequency
changer is required which generates 120 cycle. When a number of
shapers are located near each other, one frequency changer serves
them all. These motors are made specially for these machines and
are always for alternating current, 3 phase, 120 cycle, 220 volts.
Ample appliances are provided for protecting the parts, together
with all conveniences for lubrication, adjustments and manipulation.
The electric connection and control are attached to the frame of the

The Carriage Has combination roller movement which greatly facilitates the work, both
in ease of operation and as to quantity turned out in a given time.
It
is properly secured to the ways, provided with guards and cleaning
device, constantly retaining a perfect alignment with the cutter
heads.
The top of table has longitudinal lines to which the guide
may be set, for various widths of material, at perfect right angles
with the cut of the heads. A pocket is provided with spiral spring
to hold a marker to mark the face side of material as the carriage is
passed over the ways.
The hold-down device is convenient and
efficient and the fence may be set to any required angle.
The rolls on
which the carriage travels are connected from end to end and mounted
in a frame, hence the carriage must move perfectly true across the
ways. This insures not only an easy movement, no matter where the
operator may take hold of the carriage, or how much weight there may be
on it, but also perfect work. The carriage is equipped with our Patent
Bridge Bar and End Stop Gauge. This effects a large saving of time
and insures accurate work. The Front or Rear Cut-Off Saw Attachment Has a lever by means of which the saw may be adjusted to a
graduated scale, while in motion, to cut off the tenons at any desired
length. This lever is handy to the operator and results in saving much
time, especially on job work. This cut-off attachment is driven by a
belt running from the cope counter, which belt may be removed when the
cut-off saw is not in use. The Cutter-Head Spindles
Are 1 %" diameter carrying pulleys 4" diameter by 4X" face, and run in side clamping
boxes 4" long. The cope spindles are Pi" diameter. The Guide Pulley

The distance between the centers is adjusted by a screw on a gibbed
slide independently of the angular adjustment in any position.
Table Has a vertical movement on gibbed ways of 9" and forward
and back movements also on gibbed ways of 6". The Intermediate
Gear Is mounted on a radius arm, so that it always retains an even
mesh with the central spindle and the arm is held rigidly by a segment bolted to the frame, thus preventing vibration. Both gear and

Boring Arbor Is of steel, Its" in diameter and is splined in a steel
sleeve which runs in a very long bearing of fine babbitt metal, thus
all the journals on the boring arbor are of steel.
A Steady Bearing—Is placed next to the bit socket so that the wear can be readily
taken up and the bit prevented from dodging as it enters the work.
The Vertical Lever Pulls directly on the center line of the spindle
and not with a downward thrust. Table Is iron, 18"x32" surface,
and has slots for the fence at right angles so that long work can be
bored endwise as well as across, at any required angle. The table
tilts to 45 degrees both ways, and the adjustable fence can be clamped
in any desired position, square, parallel to or at an angle with the
boring spindle.
Numerous holes are provided in the fence for the
attachment of jigs or stops. Stop Gauge Is easily reached by the
operator at his post, and can be adjusted without stopping the
machine. The Foot Lever Is arranged to give a good leverage on
the boring arbor, and there is a returning spring on each side of the
frame to equalize the action. This arrangement gives a quicker and
easier movement than a counterweight.

D. C. Motor Headblock The A. W.
C. Motor is a special design for use with our equipment only.
Its operation
is
very simple, consisting of a start and stop push button station, the
starting point working in connection with a magnet switch which closes the main
circuit to motor.
The rheostat handle must always be brought back to the
minimum speed point in order to insure the motor starting on full field. The
speed can then be regulated between 600 and 3000 R.P.M. by movement of the
rheostat handle operating through field circuit of motor, and this provides maximum efficiency at all speeds. It is also provided with overload circuit breaker,
low voltage release and dynamic braking which brings the motor down to
predetermined speed.
The stop button working in connection with the
low voltage release, with the dynamic feature, brings the motor to a stop.
A. C. Motor Headblock An A. C. Headblock on a Speed Lathe is an entirely
new idea; and, the fact that it is new and because we originated it, we are not a
little proud of it.
Heretofore an A. C. Drive has been obtained by mounting the
motor on a saddle underneath lathe and belting from the cone on motor to the
one on the headstock. The convenience and safety of our new Motor Headblock idea over the old method will be readily apparent since the use of belts is
eliminated.
Motor is

The controller, like the motor, is made especially for use after our own
specifications.

To the motor shaft is attached a four-step cone pulley which is belted

most common causes of poor work viz., the rocking of the top
frame is overcome. All operators who have had to contend with
back-lash in the raising screws will appreciate our device for overcoming this fault. The Cylinders The most important feature of
a sander, are three in number, each made in one piece, of semi-steel

no other make of sander is found this automatic feature, as it is covered
by our own patents, and we guarantee that in all instances it will
perform just what we claim for it; namely, that the paper on the drums
will be kept at an even tension at all times and at all points.
The adjustment of the cylinders is regulated by hand wheels, placed
together on the working side of the machine in convenient reach of
the operator.
The raising and lowering is accomplished by wedges,
which give the cylindershaft boxes a firm support, avoiding all jumping as is necessarily the case when raising and lowering is accomplished
by screws. For re-covering the cylinders with felt or cloth, it is not
necessary to take them out of the machine, as is the case with other
makes of sanders, since this operation can be performed with little
trouble while the cylinders remain in their respective places in
the machine.
Feed There are three speeds of feed practically instantaneous.
The lever and segment for operating the feed are
located on the left hand side of the lower front girt. The segment
contains five holes three for the different speeds of feed, and two
intermediate holes for instantaneously stopping the feed. The device is accessible through an opening in the front girt of machine.
Power Hoist Is provided for the top feed works, which is not only
a saving in time but also in labor.
Its action is prompt and perfectly reliable. In The Oscillators
have obtained mechanical
perfection, and by our device the reciprocal movement is absolutely in
the line of the axis of the cylinder, thereby avoiding any lifting or
cramping motion. This is imperative to secure good work. The Boxes

Wedge Block Adjustment

THIS

ment as applied to the Columbia
Sander.
By the use of the wedge
block we have an absolutely rigid
support that will not wear, as
is
the case where the drums rest

on screws. Hence, no lost motion
can occur to disturb the parallelism
of the drums.

careful study of the illustration will clearly show the rigidity
that must obtain with this construction, and the superiority over
raising screws must be readily apparent.
If it should become necessary to adjust these wedges for an alignment of the drums (which is most unlikely) provision is made for
requiring nothing but the turning of a screw
that, and it is simple
in the block itself.

Disk and Spindle Sander
Vy/'E have incorporated
in this design all the
requirements for a combination sanding machine
for Pattern, Furniture, Chair, and general woodwork
for either flat or curved surfaces.
Ball bearings are
provided on the operating spindles; all moving parts
are driven from the main arbor and provision is made
on the base for the attachment of a motor with automatic belt tightener for driving the arbor; or it may
be driven from the countershaft which is furnished
unless otherwise specified. The machine is made in
three forms, viz. as shown in the engraving with disk
and vertical roll spindle; with disk and drum; or with
two disks; either form admits of the unit motor drive
when ordered as an extra.

massive, has a broad base and is a single casting in
cored form measuring 26" x 31" on the floor. The Disks Are of semisteel K" thick, machined to hold the cement and put in exact running
balance.
Dust hood under the table is arranged to connect with an
exhaust pipe. Disks are quickly removable from the main arbor for
changing the sand paper. Disk Table Moves vertically on machined and hand fitted ways and is counterbalanced by protected
weights; a foot lever linked to the slide and operated from the right
hand side of the machine overcomes the friction on the ways and makes
the adjustment easy; a clamp screw on the slide gib is located over the
lever.
The table is also adjustable to and from the disk and can be
tilted from 10° up to 45° down by means of a toothed and graduated
quadrant operated by a worm and hand wheel. The quadrant can be
clamped rigidly at any angle and the table rests on machined rockersthe center line of which lies on the face of the disk.
Roll Spindle
Has ball-bearings in a vertically moving yoke which gives an end motion to the sand roll while in operation.
The spindle is 74," diameter
where the rolls are attached and the latter are clamped on by cupped
collars and held perfectly central.
The rolls are made of kiln dried
hardwood covered with elastic material and cut in two centrally for
easy attachment of the sand paper and a quick change of sizes. Roll

planned at right angles to the carriage ways, and the arbor bearings
are of the side clamping type, making adjustment easy and accurate.
A. cross- feed screw is provided to adjust the wheel to the work automatically as the carriage reciprocates, and it has a hand wheel convenient to the operator, for independent adjustments. The Feed
Is entirely automatic, the reciprocation of the carriage being continuous, and the forward feed of the grinding wheel is capable of
adjustment from 1-1000" to 1-3000" to each reciprocation.
This
movement is controlled by a stop which can be set so that the wheel
will cease grinding at any point, and by means of the vertical hand
lever, the reciprocation of the carriage can be varied or stopped at
any point. The Patent Knife Bar Is a new departure in machines
of this class and enables the operator to grind ordinary slotted knives
in the usual way, and also provides a clamping jaw to hold thin hard
steel knives, which may be firmly held and ground without a separate
attachment to the bar. By a special device, thin knives can be brought
up to the wheel at an angle adapted to the work to be done, and they
may be back ground without shifting in the clamp; there is also a
special duplex index disk on the end of the bar graduated so that the
approximate grinding angle may be found quickly and the exact
angle afterward determined by the differential position of the two
sets of graduations; this device also provides for the changing diameter
of the grinding wheel so that the grinding angle may always be determined accurately. Patent Back Stops Are attached to both the
slotted knife face and the thin knife clamp, whereby the edge being
ground will be kept parallel with the back, and the knife thus always
balanced.
There are many other important details, which render
this machine superior to any now made.
The Grinding Wheel
Is 26" diameter, and cased, and provided with a water nozzle and
return spout so that all emery and steel dust is carried to a settling
tank with the water. A rotary pump supplies a large volume of water.

The Feed Is entirely automatic; the reciprocating
movement of the knife carriage is governed by stops so that any

The movement of the wheel to the knife can be regulated to grind
