Xerox Disclosure Journal
A method of manufacturing augers for transporting developer and toner materials is disclosed. A cylinder of polytetrafluoroethylene is prepared by drilling, turning or molding to the desired inside and outside diameters. The resulting cylinder is placed in a turning lathe capable of cutting a thread or a coarse feed. If the auger is to be relatively long, a support is used. The support can be a hole through any material clamped to the carriage with the cutting tool close to the support.
