A xerographic hot roll fuser is provided having a low thermal mass working surface. This is achieved by insulating the working surface or skin from the underlying hot roll core. The roll is preferably heated externally. Since such a hot roll may exhibit a tendency to distort under load, it is mounted on a rigid, nonrotating axle which is bent to compensate for any such distortion.
