"The purpose of this experiment was to determine the effect of a constant horizontal force applied to the carriage of a lathe as it turned a piece of stock which consisted of two steel bars, of different hardness, flash welded together. This experiment was performed on a lathe to which a pulley system with a mechanical advantage of six was attached to the carriage. The strain on the tool was measured both in the horizontal and vertical directions by a tool dynamometer on which eight strain gages were mounted. The strain gages were calibrated on a Tinius-Olsen testing machine. The results showed the forces were reduced and as a direct consequence, should result in an increase in tool life"--Abstract, page ii.
