> Saying that insertion of paper isn't directly related is splitting
hairs mighty fine if you ask me.
The hairs we currently split are pretty fine. As David Baquis pointed
out, our current guidance is that the manual paper tray feed *is*
covered by 1194.25(f), but that the "trays for storing reams of paper"
Let us know if you think that should be changed! But I would like to
point out that a single ream of paper by itself weighs about five
pounds. That being the case, how could a tray for storing a ream of
paper, as a control, satisfy the current 1194.23(k)(2) which reads, in
part, "The force required to activate controls and keys shall be 5 lbs.
(22.2 N) maximum."?
