moves it back with the tube 5 to its starting po

the yoke 20 is swinging back toward the front

pawl 2| thereof forces the ratchet bar ahead o-f it
so as to move this bar a greater distance than the
sleeve 8 is moved by the spring I3 .and thus forces
the feeding rod I4 to push an additional length
of the lead out ofthe tube 5. _, _ _
The lead may thusbe fed‘¿out 4of the tube 5

reached their starting position in which the

feeding rod so as to temporarily prevent a return
movement of the ratchet bar and feed rod.
The sleeve 21 is then moved back into the shank

ratchet bar and feeding rod and after the sleeve
has reached its starting position it is given a 10
