My invention has for its object to so improve the construction of metal shapers as to adapt them to greater variety of work and to increase the speed with which various classes of work may be performed. My present improvements are adapted more especially to the general class of metal shapers known as traverse shapers, the special object in view being to combine in a single machine of this class, mechanism for producing, not only a rapid longitudinal movement of the cutting tool but also a rapid transverse movement of the cutting tool. Heretofore in this class of machines the longitudinal movement of the tool has been rapid but the transverse movement has necessarily been slow. In the present machine I am enabled to produce a rapid longitudinal movement of the cutting tool and an automatic feed, or by slight adjustment to so change the operation of the machine as to produce a rapid transverse movement of the cutting tool.
