illustrated in the accompanying drawings,

and specifically'claimed. In the accompanying drawings, like'characters' of reference indicate like parts inthe several views, and Figure -1 is a top plan view of the device. Fig. 2 is aside 'elevation of the device. Fig. 3is a longitudinal section on the line 3-3 of-Fig. 1. Fig.4 1 is a detailsection'al view taken vertically 40 J In carrying out the objects of the inven tion there is provided a .hollow-handle 10 I having on each side thereof an elongated"- slot 11. At thefforwardend of this'hollow, handle is a'j head '12 which isv provided with 'a centrally. disposed opening 13.

It is to be noted that the rib 16 is arcuate 31; is also the rib 1,5 The punch or chisel shown at 20 is provided with a groove 21 intermediate its ends and when the punch or chisel is inserted in the tool holder this grooveis grasped between the ribs and 16 and held centrally of the tool by reason of the guide head 17 fitting in the slot or guide portion 14 of said head. It will be obvious that by merely retracting the plunger 18 the tool may be released from the head when engaged therewith and another tool put in place. It will be also obvious till ' that the hand is held well away from the invention to the exact form herein shown 7 and described, but it is wished to include all such as come properly within the scope claimed.
