1908 LeBlond — No. 1 Universal Cutter and Tool Grinder
Maker: R. K. LeBlond Machine Tool Co.
Class: Metal Working Machinery
Model: No. 1 Universal Cutter and Tool Grinder
"Recognizing the importance of sharp cutters as an absolute necessity for rapid and economical milling, we have brought out the LeBlond Universal Cutter and Tool Grinder. The principle of the machine is entirely new and is and embodiment of the design as used on the LeBlond Milling Machines, confiding of a knee, saddle, swivel carriage and table. This gives a rigidity to the machine that has heretofore been lacking in a cuter grinder and makes the machine well adapted to take in the large inserted tooth mills so frequently met with in modern practice.
The machine is absolutely universal and will grind any angle, taper or face. It is adapted for grinding all kinds of cylindrical and internal face and angular work— face mills, end mills, reamers, counter bores, circular saws, snap gauges, gear cutters, rose reamers, flat surfaces and all other toolroom work.
