Single Sheet Paper Supply for Reproduction Apparatus

This reproduction apparatus incorporates several multiple-sheet supply hoppers and a single-sheet paper supply, each of which may be exclusively selected to supply sheets for reproduction of an original thereon.

A narrow slot 11 in the top cover is normally closed at the bottom by plate 13, which is canted with respect to the slot under bias of spring 15. When it is desirous to supply single sheets, mode switch 17 is set to position 1 energizing magnet 19 whose armature slides plate 13 to the rear and sideways opening slot 11, and opening the circuit to the paper feed clutch 21 inhibiting paper feed from the sheet supply hoppers 2 and 3.

A sheet is inserted through slot 11 until registered against gate 23. Magnet 25 is actuated, instead of paper feed clutch 21, to release the inserted sheet into a sheet feed (not shown) for completion of a reproduction cycle.
