invention to the manufacture of a diñerent form

drel~forming member II is provided with an
axial bore 5I extending entirely therethrough,
arborniorming member le has an axial
bore 52 extending entirely through that mem- ’
ber, so that the finished blank has an axial bore
entirely through the blank from end

through the enlarged section i2 is somewhat en»
largêd over the remaining portion of the bore to
receive the insulation i9 which is- preferably
molded in place to join the two members. As
in the case of the blank illustrated in Figs. 2 and
3, the arbor member I5 has a boss il projecting
into the radial bore Iâ and surrounded by insu
lation which locks the parts together against
relative rotation or longitudinal movement. The
shoulder forming collar Ei on the insulation en
