Referring in detail to the drawing, 5

designates the cylindrical. body of the tube on holder, which is provided with e longi tudinolly bored detachable tapering point 6. At the-lurger endof this detachable point of thej tube, thesame is-formed lwith ereduced longitudinal extension 7" for telescopic eneasement in the endofthe tubebody and frictional contact with the walls thereof. The taper or-conicelsha-ped point of the tube istruncated at itstsmeller end' to produce an: annular; shoulder 8 .the'reon, the purpose oflwhich will he hereinefter made apparent.

A ring'or annulus 9 is looselydisposed Withinthe tube body 5 an d is provided with fla -transverse threaded opening 10. The wall of the-{tube body 5 is also-provided with an opening. 11 through which the shank of a set .screxv mis adapted to be inserted, said screw being threaded into the opening in the eolhirQ.
