BROACH Filed Feb. 28, 1946 4; 4 mwwmmw Q @www Patented May 11, 1948 UNIrs vSTES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.

(Granted The invention described herein may be manufactured and used by or for the Government for governmental purposes, without the payment to me of any royalty thereon.

This invention relates to an improved broach, more particularly 4to an improved broach for riiiing firearm barrels.

In many rearm barrels, particularly pistol barrels, quick twist riing is utilized to impart rapid rotationto the projectile. Likewise a large number of lands are utilized to insure adequate gripping of the projectile so that such projectile will not strip the lands. In rifling `such. a firearm barrel with a broach, such broach is required to perform a large amount of work to produce so many grooves with one pass thereof. Prior art breaching tools have not been very satisfactory when called upon to broach rifle a firearm barrel as above described.

Further, fabrication of prior art broaching tools utilized for one pass 'riiiing of a rearm barrel having a large number of grooves was extremely diicult if the tool was constructed to cut all the grooves simultaneously. due to the combination of the' small diameter of such breaches and the large number of flutes which necessitated a longitudinal flute of extremely narrow width. This produced a broach having insufficient chip clearance resulting in inadequate lubrication and torn rifling unless the length of the broach was made excessive. Consequently it has been a practice to form breaching bits very long, with pairsvof cutters spaced apart thereon a considerable distance, usually without any continuous helical fluting.

Accordingly, it is an object of this invention to provide an improved broach of moderate length for producing a large number of longitudinal grooves in a hollow workpiece, such as riiiing in a rearm barrel, without undue loading of such broach.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved broach having large width longitudinal helicoidal continuous flutes to facilitate fabrication of such broach and to provide improved chip clearance.

The specific nature of this invention as well as other objects and advantages thereof will clearly appear from a description of a preferred embodiment as shown in the accompanying drawings in which:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the broach;

Fig. 2 is a, fragmentary longitudinal section of one end ofthe broachillustrating the oil ducts;

Such was n under the act of March 3, 1883, as amended April 30, 1928; 370 O. G. 757) Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view taken along line 3-3 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken along line 4-4 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a cross sectional view taken along line 5-5 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 6 is a cross sectional view taken along line 6-6 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 7 is an end viewof the broach; and

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary planiform development of the helical fillets of the tool at the middle part thereof.

Briefly, this invention consists of a broach having a plurality of cutting portions which are virtually separate and complete gang tools, each having cutters for half the whole number of grooves to be cut, and spaced along the same shank. The cutting teeth of each successive portion are angularly displaced relative to the cutting teeth of the preceding portion. However each cutting portion has the same width chip clearance groove. In the case of a riing broach having two cutting portions the cuttingteeth of the second or rear cutting portion are so disposed that grooves cut by such portion will be spaced equidistantly between the grooves produced by the preceding cutting portion. A continuous flute joins the rst portion with the second so that there is an unbroken channel, for ease in ejection of chips and oil along the length of the broach. Such result is accomplished by abruptly changing the twist of the chip clearance flute at approximately the mid-section of the total length of the broach. Thus a chip clearance flute is provided which is as many times wider than the flute of a conventional broach as the number of cutting portions.

The improved broach to be presently described herein is utilized for broach rifling lirearm barrels. Such is -only a specific illustration however, as this invention can readily be embodied in any broach'utilized for producing longitudinally extending grooves in the bore of a hollow workpiece.

In Fig. 1 there is shown a rifling broach 20 fabricated in accordance with this invention. Such broach comprises two cutting portions l and 2 spaced along the broach and separated by an intermediate non-cutting portion I5 comprising fillets of reduced radius, each cutting portion being substantially complete breaches but each having rows of cutting teeth equal to only onehalf of the total number of grooves desired in the workpiece which will in this examplel be assumed tobe eight. 'Each cutting portion I and 3 2 is provided with four longitudinal flutes 3 and intervening fillets, the latter being equally spaced with respect to one another. Flutes 3 and fillets are produced with a, helical lead or twist corresponding to the twist of riliing desired in the firearm barrel. The iiutes extend from the leading end of the^toolthe :length of cutting portion I, whereuponthe -gain or` the lead of the flutesnis abruptly increased for a short distance as shown at II in Fig. l. then assume the same lead or twist provided for portion I which continues to the end of portion2.

Flutes 3 produce continuous flletsfhavingetop faces or lands 5 which extend the whole length of both portions I the same twist as thatof flutes 3, The abrupt change in lead of flutes 3 in portion 4 is provided to angularly displa-ce *lands 5110i -fcut'ting portions l and 2 relatively so 'that llarids` of portion 2 are disposed equidistantly between lands 5 of portion I.

Cutting teeth 5 are formed on the lands-@Stof cutting-portions I andZ 'off broachfZIlfby cutting suitable transverse kerfs in the lands. ESuoh teeth are of conventional construction and need not be further described herein. Landsnmay beA taperedin Vwidth throughoutv the: length of cutting portions I and 2, such landsfbeingfnarrower at the forwarder entering end-thanat the rear or emerging end tofacilitatel .drawing broach 2B- through Athe bore :of f a? firearm barrel (notshown). The portion 4 whichijoinsxcutting portions I4 and 2 isnotprovided with outting teethfas shown in Fig.-.l. .Suchwportionris preferably fofslightly reduced. diameter so that such portion will not :injure the .-bore.
