A slotting attachment for a center lathe is a device used to perform slotting operations on workpieces. It’s typically mounted on the cross-slide of the lathe and powered by the lathe’s spindle. The attachment consists of a ram with a cutting tool that moves vertically to cut slots into the workpiece held in the lathe chuck.


The attachment usually has adjustments for controlling the depth of cut, feed rate, and position of the cutting tool. It allows for the creation of slots, keyways, and other similar features on cylindrical or round workpieces that would otherwise be challenging to machine on a lathe.


Slotting attachments increase the versatility of center lathes, enabling them to perform additional machining operations beyond turning and facing. They are commonly used in manufacturing environments where precision slotting is required, such as in the production of gears, pulleys, and other components.
