Irregularity Compensating Castor Mount

In a four-cornered machine, three castors are fixed vertically in Order to establish the plane of the machine similarly to tripod mounting.

A fourth spring-loaded floating castor, shown in the figure, is located on the fourth corner of the machine and self adjusts its vertical position to comply with floor irregularities. The castor is held within limits by pin 10 and slot 11, and loaded by spring 12, which has a spring rate more than 1/4 the machine weight and less than 1/2 the machine weight.
