Abstract

The take-up core 10 of a paper-winding mechanism is supported between a fixed rotatable drive flange 11 and a longitudinally movable flange 12 supported by frame 13. Spring 14 biases flange 12 into contact with the edge of paper 15 wound onto take-up core 10. A cradle 16 for loosely supporting a supply roll 17 has end plate 18 aligned with drive flange 11. Supply roll 17 is held against end plate 18 by bias from spring 19 against a longitudinally movable flange 20 supported by frame 13.
