The use of auger 10 to transport toner powder from a copier's cleaning station 11 back to its developer 12, for reuse in the xerographic process, is shown in Fig. 1. Auger 10 is driven from one end only by means of motor 13 and gear box 14. The other end of the auger is bearing supported. At this other end, toner free-falls into developer 12 for reuse.
