My invention relates to certain new and useful
improvements in tool retainers,’ and while pri
marily intended for use in connectionwith power
operated hamm'ersyit will be obvious that the
device may be employed for any other purposes
wherein it is found to, be applicable.

The present invention comprises a substan
tially L‘-'shaped holding arm II, consisting of a
vide'ra tool retainer of the character described,
vertically disposed portion I2, and a horizontally
