40' which partsform the'outer casing for the rock-drill and are held in operativenposition y by the; usual side bolts -(not shown). The fcyl'inderA is provided with apiston D havfinga'forward fluted extension E which col,operatesj slidably with a correspondingly fluted chuck nut F in the front end of the cylinder A, The chuck nut F is arranged ro- ""tatably" within the cylinder and has at one end clutch teeth G which cooperate with p'artfJ to prevent relative rotation between said chuck nut and chuck'part J.
