With most quickepeningfdies it `is difieult, .if not inipossibldfto carry the thread upto a shoulder. The p sent invention 1s `destgned to obviatethis difficultyand acconiplishesit byk placing the chasers in anonclined guide which carries the forward lend of the chasers clear of the head while at the saine timev proyiding; sufiicient strength `and nniterral to` properly hold the chasers to thewvork. By this ymeans also the threads are arrangeddiagonally acrossthe ohaser andconsequently a greater `Width of thread Ypossible with a given Widthlofchaser. The invention also involves 'simplifiedV and" strengthened .construction.k Other features and details :of the invention will appear from the specification andelairnsu K y M j The invention is illustrated the accom panying drawings, as .follows :.-1- j n Eig. l shows an enduview of the die. i F ig.A 2 a longitudinal elevation, partly 1in section.

Chasers 5` are*l arrangedin Lthe slots'. The ycha-sers: have operating vslots in their faces at right anglesto the side edges of the chasers. This'niakes theslot at an inclination to the axis of the chuck. j chasers are arranged with their edges to the front andrear. andtheoperating slots are arranged in the side faces and are of less depth than the thickness of' the chasers from side face to side face, in other Words-the operating slots are of less depth than the circumferential dimensions or thicknesses ofthe chasers. Cam fingers 7 extend into the operating slots 6 andfguide the chasers inwardly and outwardly as the Cain fingers 6 are moved axially.V The cross dimensions of the operating slots are at least as great as the cross dimensions of the operating` fingers so that the operating lingers are received Wholly Within the operating slots. The cir- The j i formed on a lock ring 27. The lock cuinferential dimension of the 'fingers p,articnlarly should be narroyy enough so that theare` received Within the slots. By` this arrangement the guide slots which receive the chasers needno added. provision y in size to receive these fingers.

This adjusting screw forms the rear shoulder of the catch 17. It has a notch 25 and a finger 26 extends into thisnotch. The finger is ring isswivelled on the rear of the shank. It is adjustable by means of a Spanner Wrench, openings 28 being provided for this purpose. It is ysplit at 29 and can be clampedfor locking adjustment by means of a screWBO. It is locked on the shank by a. spring ring 3l.
