Abstract

A sheet feeder 1 advances a sheet of paper from a cassette 2 (Fig. 2) through D-shaped rolls 3 (one shown) to a platen 4. When an edge 5 (phantom line in Fig. 1) of the sheet of paper is not at the desired print position, the sheet feeder 1 is shifted relative to the platen 4. The sheet feeder 1 has L-shaped brackets 6 and 7 extending therefrom for attachment to fixed side plates 8 and 9 of the frame of a typewriter, for example. The bracket 6 has a first stud 10 (Fig. 2) extending into a slot 11 in the upper surface of the side plate 8. A threaded stud 12 extends into a second slot 13 in the upper surface of the side plate 8. The threaded stud 12 has an adjustment wheel 14 mounted thereon. The adjustment wheel 14 includes a first portion 15 (Fig.

Horizontal Index for Sheet Feeder

A sheet feeder 1 advances a sheet of paper from a cassette 2 (Fig. 2) through D-shaped rolls 3 (one shown) to a platen 4. When an edge 5 (phantom line in Fig. 1) of the sheet of paper is not at the desired print position, the sheet feeder 1 is shifted relative to the platen 4. The sheet feeder 1 has L-shaped brackets 6 and 7 extending therefrom for attachment to fixed side plates 8 and 9 of the frame of a typewriter, for example. The bracket 6 has a first stud 10 (Fig. 2) extending into a slot 11 in the upper surface of the side plate 8. A threaded stud 12 extends into a second slot 13 in the upper surface of the side plate 8. The threaded stud 12 has an adjustment wheel 14 mounted thereon. The adjustment wheel 14 includes a first portion 15 (Fig. 1) disposed on one side of the side plate 8 and a second portion 16 disposed on the opposite side of the side plate 8 to prevent the wheel 14 from moving along the axis of the threaded stud 12. The bracket 7 has a pair of studs 17 (one shown) extending therefrom for disposition in slots in the upper surface of the side plate 9 and corresponding to the slots 11 (Fig. 2) and 13 in the side plate 8. Accordingly, when the wheel 14 is rotated in one direction, the bracket 6 (Fig. 1) will be pulled towards the side plate 8 and the bracket 7 will be moved away from the side plate 9. Opposite rotation of the wheel 14 moves the bracket 6 away from the side plate 8 and pulls the bracket 7 towards...
