Abstract

A cone 1 is provided with a plurality of vertical grooves 2 in the inner surface and is further provided with an output tube 6. A plurality of input tubes 3 is provided to feed elongated objects such as electronic components 4 into the cone. The vertical grooves 2 provide a constrained path for the electronic components 4 from the entrance of the cone to the exit 6 of the cone. A cut-away portion 5 in the cone 1 shows the vertical grooves 2. .The components 4 are delivered to the output tube 6 where they are directed to the desired position. A plurality of objects may thus be selected from several sources and delivered to a single location in a minimum of time.
