Abstract

A historical problem with machine supports such as typically used to support floor and desk top machines such as copiers, is that floor unevenness requires that one, two, or all of the support legs, which may for example comprise casters, be spring loaded in order to prevent rocking of the machine caused by one support leg not contacting the floor. While many four-legged supports used with appliances such as refrigerators have adjustable supports in the form of screw legs built in to enable any unevenness in the supporting surface to be compensated for by turning the screw, the fine adjustment often required is sometimes difficult to make due to nearby structural items such as walls, adjacent equipment, atc.
