Abstract

The feeder gearbox of a copier is connected to a bail bar drive shaft by means of a flexible shaft coupling. The two shafts to be coupled together are not usually coaxial, in that the structure supporting one of them is intended to be able to pivot about an axis transverse to the shaft axis, while the drive connection between the two shafts must be maintained through the whole range of pivotal movement.
