Although the disc 16 might be in the form of a solid
plate, it is illustrated as being skeletal in form. Thus,
the illustrated disc 16 is generally in the form of a spider

The opening 22 is formed in a crossbar 32 which extends
diametrically across the ring 30 and forms the arms of
the spider. The illustrated crossbar 32 comprises two
