Antique, old and Vintage Machines
I bought to demonstrate and
grandfathers life, for my shop.
This machine is simple, strong, and compact, and designed for the use of cotton factories, tool
and general machine and repair shops. It will perform all classes of gear cutting with great
accuracy and despatch.
It occupies a floor space of 24 x 48 inches, and weighs, when ready for shipment, about 900
pounds.
It will cut every number to 100, every even number to 186, and has a very wide range of higher
numbers.
It is furnished with all necessary change wheels, tables of division, wrenches, etc., one blank
arbor, with nut for withdrawing same, and an adjustable rim rest. Two driving pulleys are
furnished with each machine, thus allowing one change of speed.
It will cut spur, bevel, and worm wheels to 32 inches diameter by 8 inches face, up to 6
diametral pitch, in steel, iron, brass, or wood, and is especially effective on all sizes under 15
inches.
It may be set at any desired angle for bevel gears by an accurately graduated arc, and has a
graduated adjustment either side of the vertical, so that it may be easily set for cutting wheels
to be operated by worms of almost any pitch; also for trimming the sides of bevel gear teeth,
when set over at any angle. The cutter may be adjusted to the centre, or half an inch either
side if desired.
The cutter is fed through the blank by hand, as shown, -a method necessary by reason of the
low price of the machine, and also one by which the largest amount of work (particularly of
light work). may be accomplished.
The countershaft should make about 275 revolutions. Pulleys are 7 inches diameter by 2-3/4
face.
It is thoroughly well made throughout, and is a complete and very convenient machine, with
all the adjustments required in m

The No. 2   Winton gear cutting machine ca
1910.                                  
              No. 2, With Rack Cutting Attachment.

I have One of these I have unrestores from the east coast.

The No. 2 machine will cut spur gears and will finish worm gears by the hobbling
process from blanks not previously nicked. It is similar to time No. 1 machine, except
that there is no provision for setting over the cutter head at an angle to time axis of the
blank.

SPECIFICATIONS.
Diameter of gears cut, 36”
Sace of gears cut,  9 1/2
Diametral pitch,  5
Size hole in cutter.  7/8
Countershaft pulleys, 10  x  3
Speed of countershaft, R. P.M.  280

RACK CUTTING ATTACHMENT
This attachment may be fitted to the No.1 or to the 2 machines as preferred. The spacing is arranged only for racks
To mesh with pinions cut according to diametric pitch. The regular attachment (shown in cut) will hold
Racks •32 inches long by 4 1/2 inches wide. Special work holders for longer racks can be made to order. By the use of suitable supporting floor
stands upon a firm foundation very long work holders may be safely ii used.
The No.1 machine can be furnished with a reversible feed. This device does not interfere with the application of the rack attachment, so that
feeding in either direction is available in rack cutting if desired.
Prices for regular or special attachments will be quoated on application.

I just made a lucky acquisition. Through a friend’s referral, I was able to acquire
via a trade a very nice early D. E. Whiton gear cutting machine. It uses standard
involute gear milling cutters. I’ve attached some photos. I’m just about positive it
was built pre-1900. D. E. Whiton moved their factory to New London, CT in 1886,
so a pre-1900 manufacturing date is certainly possible, and the machine’s general
design strongly suggests that era. It will cut gears from a fraction of an inch up to
30 inches in diameter, with either straight or angled teeth. It will also cut bevel
(miter) gears at any angle between zero and 90 degrees. There is provision for
both manual and power feed of the cutter carriage and a very efficient quick
indexing mechanism. This machine was originally equipped with 42 index plates
which allowed cutting any number of gear teeth up to 100 and many additional
gear tooth counts above 100. Miraculously, all 42 of the original index plates are
still with the machine, as well as about a dozen different original arbors for
holding the gear blanks. Additional index plates are easily made – I already plan
to make one for cutting 127 tooth gears for making metric conversions. This
couldn’t have come at a better time either since I am planning to make full sets of
metric change gears for both my Rivett 608 and my Pratt & Whitney Model B
lathes. Here's a look at the new machine and some links to more photos:

What an amazing old machine! A simple and versatile design. Probably kind of
slow for production, but easy to set up for one-offs. I want one  !

I wonder what the original belt drive setup was? I assume a flat belt to a
lineshaft, but was there a floating jackshaft? I looks like the input shaft would
move with the stroke of the head.

I agree with Bruce. I want one and I thought your little Wormwood planer was the
slickest thing I had seen in awhile !

Now we know who to turn to when looking for those missing gears for our Rivetts.

Here's a picture of a Whiton cutter from shopswarf's web site -

Can anyone figure from the countershaft how it was belted. I'd like to know too.
I'm getting an old Whiton cutter some day soon. It's older than Franks' and
doesn't have the bells and whistles his does. It doesn't come with the original
countershaft, so I'll have to figure out how to run the belts. Here's the one I
getting -

Also, here's a couple pictures of another Whiton gearcutter from the Brink auction
in Kansas a while back -

They just have a single pulley on the machine, so the floating stuff, if that's what
they used, is all up on the countershaft.

They are neat old machines, aren't they! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Irby,

Thanks for the great photos. The very last thing I expect to see was a whole herd
of D. E. Whiton gear cutting machines! From what I can see, the main difference
between your soon-to-be machine and mine is that mine has a power down feed
which can be engaged or not by swinging one of the worm gears into or out of
engagement.

Regarding the drive, mine has a recently added hinged platform under the table
for use as a motor mount. The drive is now set up for a V-belt - not very authentic
but it should work fine. As far as the original drive arrangement, yes, the
overhead drive pulley would certainly have to travel with the spindle carriage. I
can offer only one clue as to how it might have been done with overhead shafting.
One of the items that came with my machine was a 128 pound cast iron
counterweight which appeared to have been accompanying the machine for some
time. It's a simple solid cylindrical casting about 8" in diameter with an eyebolt
screwed into the top to hang it. Perhaps this was the counterweight for the
overhead drive pulley.

Consider a teeter-totter balanced arm kind of arrangement with the drive pulley
on one end of it and the counterweight on the other. If the arm pivoted on the
same axis as the line shaft, the drive pulley would always stay the same distance
from the line shaft, allowing a belt to transmit constant power from the line shaft
to the drive pulley. If the counterweight was hung an appropriate distance out on
the other end of the arm, it would provide a counterbalance for the drive pulley
plus sufficient belt tension to transmit power to the driven pulley. And since the
arm is on a central pivot, the drive pulley could follow the machine's spindle
carriage up and down while maintaining constant power transmission to the driven
pulley on the machine. That's one possibility anyway.

Also, I have a question regarding the indexing mechanism. Its basic function is
clear, but the indexing procedure requires you to skip the same number of
notches on the index plate every time you advance the gear blank for the next
cut, similar to skipping a set number of holes in the plate on an indexing head. On
an indexing head, the quadrant helps you to avoid errors by providing a positive
positioning indictor for inserting the indexing pin. I don't see anything (yet) on the
indexing mechanism of the Whiton machine that provides a positive stop so that
the ratchet picks up the same number of notches every time you swing the
indexing lever. I'm sure there must have been some provision for a feature like
this. Any idea how it worked?

I know, not very original...

Say can ya share a better shot of the table of divisions??

Frank,

Thanks for all the pictures of your machine! Until I get mine in-hand, your pictures
are all I have to go by as far as how the thing works.

As to the indexing, I see a flat on the indexing lever that looks like it can be used
against a stop. But I don't see a stop. And if there were stops to limit the swing
of the lever, there should be another stop in the opposite direction, I would think.
Maybe that flat on the lever hits the base of the machine if you swing it all the
way around. Then you would count the notches as you swing it back. To index the
gear blank, you'd move the lever until it stops against the side of the base again. I
don't really think they would have relied on just counting though. What we need to
show up somewhere is a manual for this machine. As if they even had such a
thing back then.

Basically, I don't know how it works!

Great machines guys..... Irby, is that photo from the Brink the one I took? That's
OK if it is..... and the last photo is that the same machine inside Brink's barn?
Were you there?

Bill,

I wasn't there, but I wish I had been (and with a BIG trailer and a BIGGER
wallet). I got the first picture from the time they were posted here, I think. And
the second one from a friend. Both a while back, and now they are just on my
computer. If I had known who took them, I'd have given some credit. So you
were there? You're out that way.    
I know Rich Spens
bought the Whiton cutter and at least the
Boynton & Plummer shaper, maybe more.
(Yes I did )The second picture may even
have come from his web site. Yes, the
second picture is the same machine inside.

Irby
