MILLING MACHINE OPERATIONS - OD1644 - LESSON 1/TASK 1
Fly Cutter Arbor (figure 5). The fly cutter arbor is used to support
a single-edge lathe, shaper, or planer cutter bit, for boring and gear
cutting operations on the milling machine.
These cutters, which can be
ground to any desired shape, are held in the arbor by a locknut. Fly cutter
arbor shanks may have a Standard milling machine spindle taper, a Brown and
Sharpe taper, or a Morse taper.
