Having described the invention, I claim:
1. A reñllable pencil comprising a body having
a bore, a stud having a bore carried by said body,
said bores adapted to receive a lead, a retaining
10 nut threaded on said stud, a chuck sleeve thread
ed into said nut, elongated tapered jaws arranged
in the sleeve to grip the lead.
2. A reñllable pencil comprising a body having
a bore, a stud having a bore threaded to said
~15 body, said bores adapted to receive a lead, a re
taining nut threaded on said stud, a chuck sleeve
threaded into said nut, elongated tapered jaws
arranged in the sleeve to grip the lead, an ex
tension formed on the stud to abut the jaws,
and a shoulder formed in the chuck sleeve and
engaging the extension.
3. A reñllable pencil comprising a body having
a bore and provided with a reduced screw thread
ed end with the bore extending therethrough to
receive a lead, a retaining nut threaded on the
extension, and an internal shoulder formed in 10
the nut, a chuck sleeve threaded in the nut,
elongated tapering jaws arranged in the sleeve
to engage with the lead and having shouldered
ends engaging with said ñrst shoulder.
