Our project design and fabrication of spline (gear) cutting attachment is used to cut gear or splines over the cylindrical job. Our main aim is prove lathe is a versatile machine. So this gear cutting operation is done by lathe itself.
In this project End mill cutter (tool) is fixed in lathe chuck and job is fixed over the compound slide by gear cutting attachment.
This fixture has spindle with indexing plate, here job is hold rigidly in spindle itself Feed is given by cross slide movement. And depth of cut is given by movement of carriage. When cutter rotate at 1100 Rpm. Angular splines also done by this .indexing can be done with the aid of indexing plate
