AbstractA rotative mounting arrangement for a wire supply reel off which the coiled wire thereon is fed by feed rolls comprises a reel mounting spindle axially and rotatively locked within the hub of the reel and provided at its exposed opposite ends with mounting journals for rotatively supporting the spindle in upwardly opening V-shaped trunnion type journal bearings. The spindle journals and trunnion type journal bearings are formed with axially facing cooperating bearing surfaces axially tapered at corresponding relatively steep angles to the spindle axis to have a wedge type bearing interengagement providing a self-adjusting friction drag braking action on the rotative movement of the reel that serves to prevent overrunning of the reel on stoppage of the feeding of the wire supply off the reel.
