Five hobbing machines and a selection of hobs and gear‐cutting tools were shown by this Manchester company at the Exhibition. Of these the MT‐V spline hobbing machine is a new design. In this machine the work is held with its axis vertical. Although primarily intended for the cutting of spline shafts the machine is capable also of hobbing spur and helical gears up to 15 in. diameter. The maximum distance between work centres is 35 in., and the maximum vertical traverse of the hob slide is 23 in., which can be extended to 32 in. if a cavity can be provided in the foundation.
