The control stylus 52 is mounted
upon the upper carriage 55 by means of an ex

55 being bored, to mount the control stylus
device so as to extend therethrough in loosely

bushing56 in the region of its mounting upon
the bracket 55, and the bracket 55 is formed with
a reduced annular shoulder 5‘! which engages
the-bushing55so as to support it thereatv against
substantial lateral movement. The bracket 55 is
also fitted with resilient compression rings 58
above and below the shoulder 53 to further sup-.

the uppermost resilient compression ring 58, and
a thimble 6B, is ?xed to the stylus 52 by means
