We looked at our successful MONASET
grinder very closely before we came up with the engineering refinements
which, when combined with its field proven concepts, make it
an even better tool for sharpening, reconditioning, or making
small cutters from solid stock.
Here, for example, are the proven features that MONASET
retains: Its capability for multiple grinding operations at a
single chucking of the work-piece-saves setup time; assures excellent
MONASET still maintains its versatility for generating
straight or tapered, right or left-hand, infinitely variable
leads from a simple built-in lead mechanism.
Turntable mounting of entire workhead slide assembly, adjustable
through 235 plus degrees in the horizontal plane, has proven
to be a real asset when grinding radii.
Workhead that is adjustable on separate main slide with dual
handwheel control has proven to be a boon for setups.
Offset slide for workhead spindle
permits centerline of spindle to be offset from center of turntable-a
necessity when grinding convex or concave radii with centerline
outside the axis of workpiece.
And micrometer stop dogs and graduated dials which greatly simplify
accurate positioning of workhead main slide, and wheelhead cross
and longitudinal slides.
