1. A compound angle disk cutting apparatus comprising:

  • (a) a stock feed and orienting mechanism for feeding and orienting a workpiece to be cut with respect to a point of cut;

    (b) a cut piece handling mechanism for manipulating said workpiece;

    (c) a cutting member capable of vertical motion along a vertical centerline which passes through said point of cut and angular motion with respect to said vertical centerline, the pivot of such motion being along a horizontal centerline which passed through said point of cut, said cutting member also being capable of transverse movement along said horizontal centerline; and

    (d) a cutting member positioning mechanism for moving said cutting member vertically along said vertical centerline about a pivot point located along the horizontal centerline which passes through said point of cut and transversely along said horizontal centerline whereby any engagement of said cutting member with said workpiece has a common centerpoint of cut, said point of cut being defined as the point of coincidence for the center of rotation of the workpiece, the pivot point for angular motion of said cutting member with respect to said vertical centerline and the said transverse motion of said cutting member along said horizontal centerline.
