Description:
This patent is mentioned in "Knight's American Mechanical Dictionary" of 1874: "MERRITT'S Machine for boring Angular Holes, May 24, 1864. The holes are bored by rotary cutters; fixed, and reciprocating in a plane at right angles to the axis of the hole. The relatively fixed auger makes a round hole, as usual; certain cutters which partake of the circular motion have also a reciprocation towards and from their axis of rotation, being projected outward and again retracted four times in a rotation, to cut out the angles left by the round auger, thus making a square hole."
