Abstract : The patent describes a means of correcting the contour of a cam partially or throughout its entire periphery without the labor of reshaping or even discarding the original cam. The means consists of a flexible band of steel which is adjustably attached at predetermined points to the side of the original cam. The band is then adjusted radially to the desired contour by set screws at the aforesaid points to obtain the contour correction. The cam follower will then ride on the adjusted flexible cam instead of the original one.
