This invention relates to clutch mechanisms for the power feed of lathe carriages and cross slides and aims, among other objects, to provide improved positive clutches and clutch control means, particularly adapted to enable the clutches to be operated very quickly and conveniently. Referring particularly to the drawings, the improved clutches and control means are there shown as embodied in a lathe apron, secured to a carriage which is slidable longitudinally in the ways on a lathe bed and on the carriage a cross slide is slidably mounted. The carriage is adapted to be propelled along the lathe bed by a spur gear carried by the apron and engaging a stationary rack on the lathe, the gear being driven either by power, through a train of gearing from the feed rod, or manually by means of a hand wheel. The cross slide is adapted to be moved transversely on-the carriage by means of a cross-feed screw shaft so the shaft being rotated either by power, through another train of gearing from the feed rod, or by a handle. The direction of travel of the carriage or the cross slide is controlled by a handle, which manipulates the reversing bevel gears.
