In carrying out my invention I apply to the arbor of a turning-lathe a milling-wheel, and to the end of the lathe-bed frame, and under such milling-wheel, mechanism or devices, as hereinafter described for supporting and moving an article under the action of the milling wheel. I thus have what may be termed a combined lathe and milling-machine, in which the arbor of the lathe is that of the milling-wheel, thereby saving an auxiliary arbor and mechanism for operating it, and also saving or rendering unnecessary an auxiliary frame for the support of the milling mechanism. Other advantages also result from my combination and arrangement of parts, such, for instance, as a saving of friction and a consequent diminution of power required to operate the lathe and milling machine. My combination, particularly when the lathe is provided with a turning-tool or cutter duly supported enables one attendant to tend both machines.
