Copier Clearance Adjustment

Clear and crisp "go/no-go" distinctions during gauging of a copier's photoconductor drum to magnetic brush roller gap are obtain with a ferramagnetic wire mounted crosswise on a non-magnetic long handle.

Copier clearance adjustment [*] is facilitated by using two gauges, each carrying a length of precise-dimension diameter (music) wire, attracted to the magnetic brush roller surface. The "go" gauge slides within the gap as the (plastic or steel) handle pushes the ferromagnetic wire along the magnetized roll surface. The "no-go" gauge jams in the gap. Reference [*] J.E.
