Abstract

This disclosure relates to sheet or paper handling in a copier or printing machine, and more particularly to an upper paper guide 10 of a sheet transport assembly in such a copier or printer. Ordinarily, such an upper paper guide is held in position by a spring force. However, due to changing machine conditions (i.e. vibration), the entire transport can shake during machine operation. Such shaking can cause paper handling nip rollers 12 attached to the transport assembly to lose their paper gripping and feeding force.
