Abstract

Spring wire pressure roll mounting bracket 10 provides positioning, spring force and shaft retention. The U-shaped mid-portion 11 of the spring wire affords a mounting length for securing the assembly to the associated machine element, and the unconfined length 12 provides cantilever spring action. Wire convolutions 13 confine a pressure roll shaft 15 and retain a pressure roll 16 therebetween. The pressure roll 16 is isolated from bracket assembly 10 by a pair of shims 17 at each axial side of the pressure roll. The constriction of bracket wire convolutions 13 on shaft 15 is released by forcing the wire terminal end portions 19 toward the confronting cantilevered sections 12.
