This paper discusses design and fabrication of “Slotting/ Milling Attachment to Lathe”. It is well known that lathe is considered to be a versatile machine in which several capabilities of machining are inbuilt. To further enhance its versatility, in this research, an attachment is designed and fabricated to add the capability of horizontal milling machine in lathe. A milling cutter is mounted in a cutting arbor, which in turn is mounted between the headstock and the tailstock of a lathe. A work holding device is designed and mounted on the tool post. With this arrangement, it is possible to do keyway cutting in a shaft or milling a plane surface on a work piece. This research is considered to be a milestone in the direction of increasing the capability of the machine tool like lathe.
