Abstract

deformable separator belt 11 and an indexable retard roller 12 that includes a device 17 for setting the proper depth of penetration of the retard roller into the deform- able belt in the form of a flat surface on the periphery of the roller. In use, the deformable separator belt is placed in the sheet feeder over the flat surface of and adjacent to the retard roller. The proper penetration depth of the retard roller into the deformable belt is subsequently set by indexing the retard roller to present a non-flat surface adjacent the deformable belt,

A sheet feeder apparatus 10 is disclosed having a
deformable separator belt 11 and an indexable retard
roller 12 that includes a device 17 for setting the proper
depth of penetration of the retard roller into the deform-
able belt in the form of a flat surface on the periphery
of the roller. In use, the deformable separator belt is
placed in the sheet feeder over the flat surface of and
adjacent to the retard roller. The proper penetration
depth of the retard roller into the deformable belt is
subsequently set by indexing the retard roller to present
a non-flat surface adjacent the deformable belt,
