  • Patent number: 10207337
    Abstract: A front-loaded, side-activated modular drill includes a shank and a replaceable cutting insert installed on and engaging the tool shank. The shank has a pocket for supporting the cutting insert when the cutting insert is installed within the pocket. The pocket includes a first centering wall having an aperture with internal threads formed with a first pitch and a second centering wall having an aperture with a first portion with internal threads formed with a second, different pitch. A first member is threaded into the aperture of the first centering wall, and a second member is threaded into the second centering wall. The first member is threaded into the second member. The cutting insert has an opening in a trailing end for allowing the first member to pass therethrough. Rotation of the first member causes the centering walls to elastically deform and move relative to each other.

  • Patent number: 9564268
    Abstract: A resonant transformer connected between a ground terminal and elevated terminal draws current from the earth's electric field through a primary winding of the transformer. An impulse generator applies a high voltage impulse to the primary winding of the resonant transformer to cause current to flow from the ground terminal through the primary winding. The flow of current through the primary winding of the resonant transformer induces a current in the secondary winding, which may be converted and filtered to a usable form, e.g. 60 Hz AC or DC.

  • Publication number: 20080181739
    Abstract: A disposable cutting insert for a boring cutter can reduce the roughness of a cut surface and achieve a mirror-like surface effect. The disposable cutting insert has a long curved blade edge, and the radius vertex of the long blade edge is deviated slightly from an external side of a vertex of the radius of cutting edge. A short curved blade edge is formed between the radius arc vertex and the radius arc vertex of the cutting edge. The vertical distance of the short curved blade edge is greater than the feed rate. The cutting edge cuts the work piece and the short curved blade edge can scrape a small size of material precisely for scraping the peak cut by the cutting edge and lower the height of the peak, so as to lower the surface roughness, and produce a mirror-like surface for an internal periphery of a bored hole.
