In reproduction machines, the control console mounted to the frame of the machine, must be able to self-align with the cover of the machine upon repositioning. This is a particular difficulty when the cover of the machine is one piece and the control console is not attached to the cover.

A method of self-aligning of the control console with the cover upon repositioning for the control console to be able to float in the X,Y and 2 planes upon repositioning. A method is to use a flexible rubber for a mount. The amount of float in each plane is deterrnined by the space availabIe to work with, the durometer of rubber used, and the heat generated in that area.

A preferred mount is a mount in a minimum amount of space yet allowing a degree of movement in each of the planes.
