Abstract

A feed roller for selective feeding of individual sheet into a copy path is disclosed. Two or more rolls are mounted on a shaft having positioning notches therein for holding a roll at a desired position. Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, the rolls are composed of essentially three parts: an eccentric roll 10, an elastomer portion 20, and a locating pin 30. The locating pin 30 is disposed within an aperture in the roll extending from the shaft mounting apperture to the elastomer portion 20. The elastomer portion 20 is adapted to urge the pin into the positioning notches in the shaft and to allow ease of withdraw1 of the pin from the notch.
