the lower end of the rod and a cylindrical firing chamber, 15 inches long and inches OD, screws on the upper end of the rod. Propelling charge M12 when placed in the iiring chamber and exploded by primer M44, which is attached to a piece of time blasting fuse (safety fuse) and a fuse lighter (par, 97/;), drives the rod into the earth. A removable handle, which fits through holes in the walls of the firing chambcr, an extractor, which is for gripping and lifting the rod, and an extension which is for lengthening the rod, are used to pull the rod from the earth. The tripod furnished with the set consists of a 4%-inch ring supported on three adjustable legs. In order to hold the rod steady for firing, the firing chamber, when assembled to the rod, is held within the ring of the tripod, which is centered over the point where the hole is to be made. CHARGE, springing, is furnished with the set for enlarging the diameter of the hole, made by the main rod and point, throughout its depth. A forked inserting rod is furnished for inserting an improvised springing charge, made up of a bundle of detonating cords, into the hole made by the main rod and point. Such improvised charges may be used as an expedient for springing holes of various diameters (depending on the number of detonating cords used in the bundle) when a regular CHARGE, springing, is not available. The blasting caps and safety fuse or 1 ime blasting fuse furnished with the set are used for detonating either the regular CHARGE, springing, or for detonating an improvised springing charge.
